Comments An article written by Paul Byrnes for the Saturday Sydney Morning Herald. It is essentially a review of the film Lucky Miles. It is quite lengthy for a film review in a newspaper, it is actually a full page in length and goes into quite a lot of detail in regards to the plot of the film and the talent, both cast and crew involved with the production. This would be a useful piece for anyone who hasn't seen the film and is looking for a brief summary of the basic storyline. Byrnes talks largely about the films tone, particularly it's comedic approach to an issue that is mostly overlooked in Australian cinema. It comes from a reliable and well established source, in that it was published in The Sydney Morning Herald, and it provides an interesting insight into how a film critic felt about the film upon its release.

It is a valuable article to read as it discusses the film in detail, covering topics such as filming locations, story inspiration and the comedic tone. Byrnes has clearly enjoyed the film, describing it as a “wry, perceptive and wily piece of filmmaking” which is useful as it can be used as a way to refer the film to others. This article is significant in that it is a lengthy review of the film which covers a range of aspects of the production, and it could be useful to both those who have and have not seen the film already as a means of creating further discussion.
