I was talking to a French friend about ANZAC day and suggested she watch “Gallipoli” to get a better idea – it can be difficult sometimes explaining why we commenerate a battle that we lost but it is the getting of nationhood for Australia and New Zealand.
So it got me thinking. What films would you recommend someone from another land watch to get an idea of Australian traits and heritage/history? The idea is so people can go and get them out to watch and learn about us.
I want you to help me out and list the films you think should be on the list – just use the comment button below.

Rabbit Proof Fence
The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith
The Sum of Us
A Town Like Alice
