Prominent Australian Aboriginal activist Gary Foley plays a leading role in Backroads. Foley is cast as an Aborigine who links up with boorish, racist Bill Hunter. A wanted criminal, Hunter drags Foley down to his level. Disaster results, with the Aborigine bearing the brunt of the worst life has to offer. Running a scant 61 minutes, Backroads makes its point with the brutal sharpness of a slap. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
