Chasing Asylum is a new documentary about Australia’s treatment of asylum seekers and refugees. From Oscar Winning director / producer Eva Orner, Chasing Asylum looks at the moral, human, financial and political impact of present and previous policy…
I’m curious about the differences between Australia’s current and previous policy. Particularly how it is that the apparent cruel and inhumane treatment of seemingly desperate human beings has been deemed justifiable.
The Dressmaker is a fun revenge drama set in a rural small town in Australia. I use the word ‘fun’ because of the dialogue, characters, cinematography and the haute couture fashion and colours of the 1950s.
The character played by Hugo Weaving is the source of several laughs and a definite highlight. As always, the film’s star, Kate Winslet delivers a wonderful performance. The movie’s beautiful soundtrack, courtesy of composer, David Hirschfelder is also another plus.
Directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and based on the novel by Rosalie Ham, watch The Dressmaker because it’s good and you probably won’t be able to guess how things are going to unfold until they do.
Sarah Snook, Judy Davis, and Liam Hemsworth also star. Here’s the trailer for a taster.
