Such outcomes will be the measure of our progress towards true reconciliation. Unfortunately, over the last few years, certainly in the four years since the tabling of the Bringing Them Home Report, we have seen public debate which has done more to reopen the wounds of the past rather than heal them.
There is nothing to be gained from semantic debate about the words "stolen", "removed", or "separated". As all of us here well know, we cannot allow mere semantics to distract us from the issue itself. Playing with words does not change the fact that too many Indigenous people continue to suffer tremendous grief as a result of government policies and practices of the past. How many people is irrelevant but if it was only one in ten people as the Federal government stated last year, by most accounts, this would equate to one person in every family and tens more from every community.
The Prime Minister has been noted as saying that he does not wish to argue about "what may or may not have happened" but to look to the future for the answers. What all Australians need to do is, by virtue of the facts as displayed in the Bringing Them Home Report and others , admit that these events took place as Dumisa highlighted. We need to then understand that these events took place on the basis of race, not on the basis of unfit family members. In many cases, the welfare boards did not assess Indigenous families' abilities to care for the child, but presumed and preempted an outcome based on their heritage.
This is important to note. Loss of contact with parents for whatever reason is a tragedy and where it occurred without regard to the direct welfare of the child, it is a very unhappy part of our history. It is often said that our children are our future. Part of this acknowledgement is to also acknowledge that the effects of such removal are still being felt today - from those who survived it, and those who are survived by their parents whose culture is fragmented by the loss of language and family.
To question whether it may or may not have happened retards this country's ability to deal with the matter, and so retards its progress towards true reconciliation. This is why the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation always strongly stated that a formal national apology, in the light of our shared history, would be a crucial element of reconciliation.
So what we need to do, as a nation, is move beyond the question of "did it happen" and move on to "we acknowledge it happened, how can we heal ourselves and each other so that the pain is less of a wound in our side, pinching and aggravating our ability to walk forward".

For Indigenous people, we need to come to terms with the fact that this government is not ready to offer an apology, that a government sometime in our future will, and in the meantime find a way to move forward. We need to find ways of dealing with our pain in the absence of an apology.

Nov 30, It is officially the lowest of low points for Vince Vaughn in the comedy game. Not only does it lack anything close to a laugh that is meant to feel meaningful or hearty, it doesn't even compliment that with an emotionally engaging side-story behind it all. Tom Wilkinson and Dave Franco seemed like they were given zero direction on how to act for their roles. Now, I get Franco fits the bill more so than anyone forced to be in this film, but even he sinks to a point of no return for forced performances as a supporting stage dummy.
But it wasn't just the performances that ruined this movie. The storyline seemed to keep repeating the same problems over and over again every 15 minutes. It was like watching the same train wreck on repeat without much of a resolve until the very end. But that train wreck kept happening the same way every single time.
Unfinished Business is an apt title for this dumpster fire. It felt unfinished and ultimately unwatchable for 90 minutes. Lane Z Super Reviewer. Jul 30, Never have I asked myself, so early in a review, why a film exists. Like I watched this movie and I was asking myself, 'who is this meant for and why would they like it? But I just can't, for the life of me, think of one good reason why this film needs to exist.
Of course, this is like a tiny drop of water in the vastness that are films, so it's not like anyone will actually remember this film within, say, the year's end.

I'm still genuinely curious what the thought was behind the production of this film. Did the people behind this movie look at the footage being filmed and did they think 'we have a winner on our hands'? They couldn't have possibly thought this at any point of the filming of the film.
It's not that the film is bad, it's just that it pretty much goes nowhere right from the start, despite the fact that it's all about these three travelling and a having "raunchy" good time in Germany. But what is the reason behind it? Not that I'm asking to be emotionally invested in these characters, but at least give me one reason to care. Oh, Dan's going through some rough times financially and he's having to deal with some issues his kids are dealing with. That's simply not enough, particularly when it could be used to describe a bunch of films with similar characters.
The only character with one hint of an interesting background would have to be Timothy's character. He's been in a loveless marriage and he wants to get out of it, so he can be happy and truly live again. I think that's something that a lot of people, particularly those that are older, can relate to. Whether they married young or were concentrated on work, they just never got to live it up because of one thing or another. As mentioned, it's something that's easy to relate to, but they do next to nothing with it.
They do pretty much exactly what you would expect from them. There's no thought put behind it, it's all laziness. And what can be said about Mike?

The sweet retard. There's no other way to describe him, that's where they were guiding you. I know Vince Vaughn has been in a lot of shitty movies, like an inordinate amount, right, but I genuinely think the guy has, when he's feeling inspired or he has a great script, some great comedic timing and delivery.click here

I genuinely think that. You may not have seen that side of him in years, it seems, but I think the guy has talent as a comedic actor. It's just that he spends a lot of his time lending his talents to substandard and generic comedies that he's simply not that inspired to be in. And the latter is all his fault, I am completely aware of this.
