Movie Starts at 3:00 pm
Indigenous filmmaker Leah Purcell alters Henry Lawson’s iconic story to deliver a quite different narrative about the harshness of life confronting a woman in the Australian bush. Subtitled ‘The Legend of Molly Johnson’, the film is set in the remote high country of the Snowys during the 1890s. Molly, partly indigenous and pregnant, lives in a cabin with her children, struggling to keep going in the absence of her drover husband, apparently away on a cattle drive. As the story unfolds, we realise things are not what they seem. Molly is uneasy when a fugitive indigenous man seeks refuge with them, but he helps her and gains her trust. However, things take a disastrous turn when suspicions arise over the continuing absence of her husband.
