Lucky Miles

Good Essays
There is definitely no doubt in my mind that Lucky Miles should be included in the International Australian Film Festival of 2016. The inclusion of this film is justified by how Australia and its people are portrayed perfectly with a balance of seriousness and humor thanks to its Australian director Michael James Rowland. With home grown films it is typical for writers to take the easy road and create two dimensional characters without any personality. This most certainly is not the case in Lucky Miles and is one of the main reasons why it should be considered for the festival. The director truly shows his skill by being able to bring the viewers back to 1990 and make it completely believable. He didn’t miss any detail from the clothing all the way to the personality and facial expressions of each individual character.

It shows the harsh terrain of Australia whilst intertwining the kind-hearted care free attitude of its people. Not only does it break the stereotypical molds it challenges new ideas of what it means to be Australian. Finally after many years a movie has stood up, tackled an issue head on, an issue that has been up for debate for decades. It brings a new view of Australia and Australians to the international market and shows it how we truly are. We don’t smoke and drink every day or ride kangaroos to work, but we do stand by our mates, keen to have a laugh and are able to pull through although being in one of the least habitable places. It’s thanks to this fair and just view of Australia that Lucky Miles has been so successful and why it is so effective, without a doubt Lucky Miles has to be at the 2016 International Australian Film

Success, to a great extent, can be influenced by luck, but this is not to say that luck is an accident. Luck is predictable. With hard work, it can be controlled.

    The Lucky One You can tell by the authors name that “The Lucky One,” is a romance novel. Nicholas Sparks is one of the first thing people think of when they think of a love story. From reading this book, I realized that he is very good at writing his genre. It’s probably why he sticks with it instead of trying something else. The story had a combination of humor and passion, sadness and hate. But in the end,” the lucky one” was the one that got the girl. And he was the “one” that the love story…
