Directed by Leigh Sheehan
Running time 93 minutes
Based on a human interest story seen by director Leigh Sheehan, a graduate of RMIT Television Production, on A Current Affair
, about the occupants of a retirement home who adopt and race a greyhound, its source very much defines it. A familiar feelgood life-transforming narrative template is fleshed out with a suitably reassuring script and musical embellishment and delivered with serviceable directorial style. Ray Barrett leads a cast of veteran Australian actors including Gus Mercurio, Esme Melville and Alan Hopgood in what is definitely one to keep for Aunt Dorrie.DVD Extras
: A making-of featurette; a television story celebrating the film's 1st birthday screening at the Pinewood cinema in Glen Waverly, a Melbourne suburb; photo montage and theatrical trailer.
