The Way Back

Australia, 2002 (MIFF 2002, Fiction)

Director: Samuel Macgeorge

Elderly couple Shirl and Norm take fate into their own hands as they grapple with Norm's deteriorating memory and the onset of dementia. This tragic love story is beautifully told, impeccably photographed and leaves behind a haunting resonance.
