The Dish

Thanks to one of those free weekends that the subscription movie channels sometimes provide, I got to see one of my favorite movies over the weekend. The Dish is a simple story with virtually no Hollywood stars - I only knew Sam Neill - or effects, but it's a lot of fun. I'm surprised to see that it got a PG-13 rating in America. I would have no qualms about letting my children watch it.

The Dish is Australian as are a few other of my favorite movies. I've loved Breaker Morant ever since I was introduced to it by friends in college and Strictly Ballroom is one I would never have watched if my wife hadn't forced me to. Those two, like The Dish, are great to watch despite (or maybe because of) the roughness around the edges.
