Lucky Miles (Michael James Rowland, 2007) Kenneth Moraleda, Rodney Afif, Sri Sacdprascuth, Don Hany, Sean Mununggurr; Australian release 19 July 2007; illegal immigrants landed on remote WA coast by Indonesian people smugglers
The best Boat People film, it also has fun with its Australian characters.
Zig-zagging between the comedic and dramatic, Lucky Miles is a patchwork quilt made of fact-based stories embellished by the imagination of the filmmakers, and it plays so successfully it was voted Best Feature at the 2007 Sydney Film Festival Audience Awards. Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile.
