superb.........By williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 23 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]this was a superb period drama, which is about a very little known true story in history, from our colonial past. it is about a cornish girl called mary bryant who was transported to botany bay for stealing a bonnet.
it is a true testament of the determination of the human spirit and their bravery. ordinary people were transported for usually petty crimes. it showed just how people were able to survive against overwhelming odds.
this is well worth renting out, particularly if you had ancestors who were transported to australia, just like i did.

Epic adventureBy Swansea_Jack (92 reviews) , 23 Oct 2013Wonderful epic adventure charting the life of Mary Bryant, the historic integrity is a little muddled it has to be said, but it is very enjoyable, Romola Garai is brilliant in it. A little long winded at over 3 and a half hours, but well worth watching.
Good epic from OzBy MikeLaughton (113 reviews) from Oakham,England , 01 Feb 2012Epic adventure story about a teenage girl transported to Australia in the late 18th Century. The three hour movie charts her journey to the colony, her life as a prisoner, her marriage and the birth of her two children, her escape from the prison camp and what happens afterwards.
A well-made, well-acted, well-written and well-directed epic from an Australian production team with a British, Irish and Australian cast.
Authentic enough to be shown in schools to illustrate how Australia was colonised but entertaining enough to give a good night's viewing.
Needed a little moreBy blahblahblah (48 reviews) from Sandy , 30 Jan 2012Gripping all the way through, but would benefit from the historical context being set better, eg, the French Revolution, & English Gov't's fear of the mob.
Mary BryantBy a customer , 04 Oct 2011A really good film. Very interesting and gives an insight into how the prisoners were treated after being arrested for the most minor of crimes.
Good storyBy a customer , 18 Sep 2011Film very well done but not as good as the book, Which I have read a couple of times, and as it is based a true story, it would be worth getting the book to compare it to the film.
