Walkabout- FFR

Walkabout (1971)- Nicolas Roeg

Verdict: Try it.

A teenage girl and her younger brother are left stranded in the outback after their father shoots at them, lights the family car on fire, and commits suicide. While trying to survive the harsh desert environment, the siblings meet a young aborigine undergoing his right of passage, his walkabout. Will he ultimately help them survive?

Walkabout is filled with strong performances, beautiful cinematography, and the harsh realities of both wild and domestic life. It’s a film about the problems of communication as well as both what it takes and what it means to truly live. Some might miss or disagree with the message, but its hard not to be moved by what happens on the screen. Try it.

QOL: human, meaning and truth, beauty
