(1988) N/A (N/A) (1) * * * * "See my profile for the key to this code" * * * * SYNOPSIS: "The 1988 Australian miniseries "The Shiralee" was, like the 1957 film of the same name, based on a bestselling novel by D'Arcy Niland. A shiralee is Australian slang for the bundle carried about by a swagman (a tramp or thief). In this instance, the "bundle" is the 10-year-old daughter of an Australian migrant laborer whose wife has left him. The laborer then takes his daughter on a long, "bonding" trek through the Outback. For its American public TV debut in 1991, "The Shiralee" was shown in its two-hour version, which was released theatrically in some areas as "Macauley's Daughter." MOTIVATION FOR ME TO SEE: Since first watching Bryan Brown in PBS' "A Town Like Alice" (1980), I have found him an interesting actor to watch. This film, even though not highly rated or reviewed (and criticized for technical faults in most reviews), hopefully will put me into the great Australian outback, maybe even providing a reminder of "Rabbit Proof Fence" (2002), one of a number of great films from down under.
