'Fence' and Sensibility

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Philip Noyce (The Quiet American) directed thistrue political story as a kind of simple adventure story, complete withwide open spaces a la John Ford and a terrific villain (Kenneth Branagh)who truly believes he's doing the right thing. In 1931 Australia,half-caste Aboriginie children are captured and placed in government-runtraining centers to prepare them for "civilized" life. Three girls, ages8 to 14, decide to escape -- and we follow them -- as they trace the fenceback home. Stunning.
