25 best Australian movies ever
Rabbit-Proof Fence (2002)
The “breeding-out” of Aboriginal mixed-race children (the Stolen Generation) was also tackled in Baz Luhrmann’s 2008 romantic Aussie Western, Australia – but with a lighter brush than that of Rabbit-Proof Fence director Phillip Noyce. His film recounts the true story of three kids who try to outwit the authorities on a 1500-mile journey back to their hometown. That’s like walking from London to Warsaw. Ouch.
