Story


"Bran Nue Dae" is a charming new Australian-based, music-driven road movie/romantic comedy starring Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush that literally bursts onto the screen with unbridled energy and fun. Loosely based on one of Australia's most beloved and popular musicals, Bran Nue Dae is a foot stomping tour-de-force centering on the romantic adventures of a young aboriginal couple set against the spectacularly beautiful Australian landscape.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the movie feels trapped in the 1980s and feels like a missed opportunity..”
by Jennie Punter [Globe and Mail]
“..it's the broadest of comedies and the slimmest of musicals, relying more on goodwill than on anything resembling professional entertainment. It also strains to make a statement, unsure of what the message is..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..something about its exuberant eagerness to please gets lost in translation, and the glee becomes suffocating. This is one bright, sunny movie that makes you long for a rainy day..”
by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald]
