Fact-based drama set in 1931 Australia where three aboriginal girls, ages 14, 10 and 8, forcibly taken from their mothers under the law and sent to an institution for "half-castes" 1,200 miles away, escape and begin their long walk home while evading the pursuing authorities. As directed by Philip Noyce and enhanced by the three novice child actors and Kenneth Branagh as the rigid bureaucrat in charge, the heart-wrenching tale of institutionalized racism resonates deeply. Some menacing scenes and a theme of racial bias against indigenous peoples. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
