Absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking film. A bleak, in moments hilarious, genuinely devastating view on the post apocalyptic effect of colonialism within Australia. It's been over a week since viewing and am still thinking back to Charlie... the universal struggle and necessity of adapting amongst infinite change for survival.
