Rabbit-Proof Fence

3.5/5 stars

In the 1930s, half-breed aboriginal children are taken from their homes and trained as domestic staff to save them from having to live between two worlds. Molly, Daisy and Gracie are three such children. However, Molly escapes with the two other girls in tow. They trek 1,500 miles across the Outback, following the rabbit-proof fence (constructed across Australia to keep the rabbits contained), since they know that the fence runs near their village. Mr. Neville, the legal guardian of all such half-breeds according to the government mandates, has a tracker and local authorities searching for the girls the entire time.

This was a good film, though somewhat depressing.
