Watched this little movie tonite and enjoyed it. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1703148/
Simple enough of a tale: part Moby Dick, part Straw Dogs, part Get the Gringo.
The best part of the movie is the great shots of Tasmania.
The pay-off is something of a let-down, but worth a 90 minute investment.
Saw it on an HDNET movie premiere a few months ago. Agree with everything you wrote. Acting is top notch too.
Slow pace but gorgeous Tasmania scenery in Australia. The 2 kids were amazing, especially the boy.
It was based on a book by Julia Leigh. Thanks for bringing it up; enjoyed it, especially the finale.
Worth a rental.
