Giving cinematic praise where it's due. Raining down hellfire where it's not.

Rabbit-Proof Fence (Hadashi No 1500 Mile) (2002)
Filmed in Australia, it's the true story of a young Aboriginal girl, her sister, and little cousin, who are stolen away from their home and sent to a girls camp to learn the ways of Western culture. They escape and travel over a thousand miles through the bush on foot back to their mother. They used three non-actors to play the parts and they are amazing. Very inspiring movie.
The documentary (45 min long) on the DVD is a must-see too. Add this to your list of non-Hollywood movies to see.
