Rabbit Proof Fence (2002)

We drove down to the Regal Village Square 18 theaters, our "local" alternative/art film venue, and enjoyed a showing of "Rabbit-Proof Fence".

This is a depressing film in a number of ways. I walked out thinking, Good Grief, the Maori tribes in New Zealand don't really have much to complain about the way they, as aboriginal people, were treated by the government of the European settlers, not in comparison to what happened to the native Australians... but the thing is, one has to fight injustice in all its forms with the same conviction - it's not about comparisons.

Afterwards we met up with Stan and Jeanne at a nearby Outback Steakhouse - an Australian-themed restaurant seems appropriate! Kind of. Rabbit was not on the menu.
