238. Rabbit-Proof Fence (2002)


See that bird? That's the spirit bird. He will always look after you.

Wow, I've gotten pretty lazy with the blog.... Catch up day today! 4 posts to follow...

This is one of the most moving true stories I have ever seen dramatized in a movie. Three young Aboriginal girls are torn from their families in an attempt to "civilize" them and introduce them to "normal" families where they can blend in to proper Australian society. The young girls will have none of this though and set out on a trek across the Aussie outback to return home. They must fend for themselves against the elements and the authorities as they follow the "rabbit-proof fence" 1500 miles back to their families.
