THE DISH   Print  E-mail 
Written by Graham Reed  
Monday, 05 July 2004
Half the battle of Moon landings wasn't getting there: it was also about making sure we could watch it on live Television....

"The Dish" is that story; centered around a satellite dish in the Austrailian outback, it deals with the crew of the Dish, the fame it brought to the small town, not to mention a running joke involving anoverzealous security guard and the local herd of sheep. Sam Neill is Cliff Buxton controller of the dish, with Kevin Harrington as his lovelorn understudy, doing their best to juggle the needs of NASA, the town mayor, and how to ensure that Ross finally manages to woo the girl of his dreams.

The Dish is one of those films that probably passed you by at the cinema, but its deserves a far wider audience. A heartwarming, gentle charming comedy that's a welcome break to the endless stream of teensploitation flicks of recent, and even your parents might like it. And it just makes you want to go "awwwwwww"...it's lovely this is.
