Collette's pitch-perfect performance and the stunning evocation of the forbidding and beautiful outback make this film unexpectedly rewarding.

Peter Howell
Toronto Star
An underdeveloped film that requires all of [Collette's] ample skills merely to rise to the mediocre.

Globe and Mail
Lots of pictures begin strongly only to lose their focus; this one gains momentum with every sequence -- ambivalent at first, we're firmly hooked by the final frame.
