If you were kidnapped by the government, would you walk the 1500 miles back home?

It's the 1930's in outback Australia. Three young Aboriginal girls - sisters Molly (Everlyn Sampi) and Daisy (Tianna Sansbury) and their cousin Gracie (Laura Monaghan) are snatched from their mothers' arms in Jigalong, Western Australia and sent to a remote settlement at Moore River. 1500 miles away from home, distanced from their mothers and forced to adapt to a strange new world, the girls attempt the impossible and embark on a daring escape.

What ensues is an epic journey across an unforgiving landscape that will test the girls' very will to survive. Their only resources - tenacity, determination, ingenuity and each other. Their one hope - find the rabbit-proof fence that might just guide them home.

Good movie, not very long though. My 9 and 12-year-olds enjoyed it very much. At the beginning of the movie it said there are adult scenes but there was nothing so it is safe for children to watch.

Heart breaking and astounding sad. A momentous undertaking that will have you shedding tears and raging at the injustices man practices. Beautifully told and acted.

I loved this movie. It's inspiring. Glad that there was no violence or nasty sexual abuse, but irked that white humans can be so inhuman. Filmed well, mediocre acting but it doesn't matter.

Quite good - story was quite well done. Although the slow nature of the movie bothered some, I thought it suited the movie pretty well. Light on character development.

I really enjoyed this movie. It was nice to see a movie that didn't have sec scenes and bad language. It's hard to believe in this day and age that people were treated this way years ago.

Very good movie based on a true story, which made it more compelling to watch, but not one that I would bother watching again.

A brilliant eye opening film, very emotive spent time crying or swearing at the screen. A definite must see film.
