Gently charming tale set in an Australian opal mining colony about an 8-year-old girl (Sapphire Boyce) heartsick over the disappearance of her two imaginary friends, the search for whom causes unintended consequences resulting in the locals turning against her father (Vince Colosimo), until the supportive efforts of her 11-year-old brother (Christian Byers) -- concerned about his sister's deteriorating emotional and physical condition -- win over the town. Director Peter Cattaneo's adaptation of the Ben Rice novel "Pobby and Dingan" celebrates themes of family, community and the value of childlike faith in a way that's genuinely sweet while avoiding excess sentimentality, with tender performances by Boyce and Byers. A lovely little film. Brief violence, some crude expressions and a fleeting instance of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
