A great tale of someone trying to get back into society, who seams to get knocked back at every turn. Essie Davis is brilliant as a woman who has had a tough life but remained strong and fighting adversity, even-though she makes a few mistakes along the way. Thomasin Mckenzie also excellent. Well written, played and shot, another Kiwi gem!
Beautiful story about a mother's love and poverty. I enjoyed this movie and how it reflects reality of life. Amazing acting by the leading lady and her neice.
There can be no sympathy for anyone who breaks the law. This is exactly what's here in the movie. The so called loving and caring mother cannot provide for them and is a law breaker right till the end. Don't ask why she did it. The fact that she did it means that she is not fit to care for the kids. No sympathy.Boring movie and absolutely pathetic stuff.
