September

September is a brilliant Australian movie that is set in the wheat-belt of 1968 and is the tale of two best friends, one white and one black and how their friendship is tested by the pressures of the political times and social climate. Ed (Xavier Samuel) is the son of a struggling wheat farmer, whereas Paddy (Kieran Darcy-Smith) is the son of an aboriginal worker on the farm.

As children, both the boys knew nothing of racism and the colour of their skin was almost non existent and when the government declares that all aboriginal workers should get the same pay as whites, this causes financial hardship on the farm as Ed's father may need to let Paddy's family go.

Their friendship is even stressed even more when Ed goes to visit Amelia, a girl he has a crush on (Mia Wasiowska) at night, only to be scared back home from the barking of dogs which leads the police to Paddy.

Taking out their frustration in the boxing ring, September is an interesting snapshot of Australian history with realistic characters in this immersive drama that is perfectly directed by Peter Carstairs whose cinematography makes great use of the Australian landscape.
