  • Renton47's rating of the film Quest

    In my country we fetishise the Aussie Battler, a laughable conceit of someone who works hard for decent pay. Quest depicts a level of struggle that few could survive intact, and most defiantly it's the most hopeful response to these conditions. Most radically it posits the Rainey's as individuals most worthy of being our role models - not remotely unrealistic for those who witness their dignity + decency. 4.5
