True Love.


Samson & Delilah
Australia's entry to the 2010 Foreign Language Oscars takes a bleak look at some of the problems faced by the Aborigines. We follow a young man and young women, who, after an incident which leaves her battered, leave their community and try to fit in in a nearby town. Things are tough, but through the toughness something wonderful develops between them.

Tomatometer quote icon Alternately beautiful and heartrending, Samson and Delilah is terrifically acted and shot, and presents a complex portrait of what it means to be Australian.
