RABBIT-PROOF FENCE (2003, AUSTRALIA)

FILMS FROM THE 21st CENTURY
(Post 23 of 50)

Some quick takes on the most relatively recent listings from the
1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list


I figured that this often heart-wrenching story of three very young girls escape from their settlement facility and 1,500 mile walk back to their aboriginal home was based on fact, because you just couldn't make it up without having it seem too far-fetched! A sad, moving, but often inspirational film.

David Gulplil 1001 Movie appreciation society

David Gulplil in Walkabout

David Gulplil in The Last Wave

David Gulplil in The Right Stuff

Not a 1001 movie, but David Gulplil
was also in Crocodile Dundee

And David Gulplil as The Tracker in Rabbit-Proof Fence

I have no idea why David was not cast in The Chant of Jimmy Blacksmith.
