    Amazing story about three aboriginal children traveling 1500 miles to get back to their family. Rabbit-proof fence is brilliantly acted and carries a haunting message about a side of Australia that seems to have been covered up. The only criticism I have on the film is that it was a bit disneyfied, they should have tried to make it more controversial and harder for the audience to watch. The Comic Sans font made me laugh too. 5 years 3 months ago

    spoiler Such a sad reality in Australian history. a time when they'd take Aboriginal children away from their family to bring them up in a "civilized" world and pair them off to white men to increase their chances of giving birth to white children. here is a true story of the bravery of three sisters who escaped to go back home 7 years 5 months ago
