Premise: A beautiful and cultured woman returns to her small town in rural Australia where she seeks to get revenge on the people who sent her away for a crime she committed as a child.
Review: I LOVED this movie. Between the ragtag band of town misfits, lead by the incomparable Judy Davis (who i predict will receive an Oscar Nomination), the scenery and costumes which were characters unto themselves and the very unique twisty plot, this movie made me laugh and cry on several occasions. A very sexy Kate Winslet shines in her role as the seductive temptress and chemistry between her character and Liam Hemsworth was palpable.
