"This movie is an absolute GEM! I simply cannot believe that there are no reviews of it. I can't remember where I heard about it, but when I knew that it was available through Amazon, I knew that I wanted to have a personal copy of the DVD. I really don't want to let any viewer know just what the movie
is about (the Amazon synopsis is very accurate), so I won't give
any specifics about the movie. I would prefer that you WATCH THIS MOVIE!! The acting is superb, and the scenery for the
photography is even more amazing. I loaned this movie to another "movie aficianodo" and she was as enthusiastic about its quality as well. It was filmed and released in 2004 in Australia, but very poorly marketed, and it wasn't until just recently that it was released in the US, in 2006. This Australian movie is truly phenomenal."

"I bought Oyster Farmer because of Alex O'Loughlin, spelled O'Lachlan in the movie from Moonlight on CBS. I Loved, loved, loved this movie and if I were going to buy just one of his, this would be the one. I have seen almost all of his performances , seven total , and this one stands out for no other reason than he Lives and it ends happily. Without going into the plot to great extent, it does take place in New South Wales and was produced by Showtime Australia. It is gorgeous scenery and the music is pure aboriginal (I hope you know what I mean). You can see the boomerangs flying when you just listen. He made this four years ago(2004) and you can see how far he has come if you are a fan of the CBS show Moonlight. Highly recommend. This was also the selection for the Toronto Film Festival - -probably 2005."

"This movie takes place down under of a man who leaves the city to work as a laborer on an Oyster Farm in order to assist his sister in rehabilitation from an accident. The lengths a family member will go to for the medical bills, and also finding love when he least expects it. Alex O'Loughlin is the brother taking care of his sister. He is a fabulous actor no matter what role he plays!"
