A missing person, a family in crisis, and you won't learn what's what until the end. Very enjoyable.

Well acted, full characters in a complex story...if you like a mystery that feels modern (as opposed to Miss Marple) and doesn't make you cover your eyes a lots (gore or graphic sex), then you'll want t check this one out.

This is a family drama/mystery from down-under, Australia. It takes a long time to get to the core of the plot. Once there, the plot becomes more interesting. Patience required.

Seemed like a thriller from the cover but actually a surprisingly good family drama about secrets. Another in a long line of quality little Australian films.

Smart, slick, and thrilling, Wish You Were Here benefits from a compelling mystery at the center of its tightly wound plot, as well as strong performances from a cast that includes Joel Edgerton.

Excellent film with interesting timeline shifts. Tight and suspenseful. Loved it.

One of the dumbest and worst-told stories I've ever seen. "Four went, three came back", according to the cover. Who was the 4th person??? The story was so unclear. Needless to say, I wouldn't recommend it.
