Largely shot in Middleton, the sister city of Winton in western Queensland, the film is in itself is beautifully shot while highlighting the beauty of this country. The cast was perfect, with Jacki Weaver delivering an extremely convincing performance as Goldstone's mayor and local busybody, Maureen and David Wenham in short khaki pants and long socks, resembling that of Scoutmaster Ward from Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom. Unlike Wes Anderson there was very little symmetry, however, aesthetic for this film was paramount. Car chases and gun fights shot from a bird's eye view, as well as neon signs lighting up the otherwise dry and barren landscape. The film is a beautiful piece of cinematography and introduces the world to the deserts of Australia's red centre, if you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend you give Goldstone your time, attention and thought.
