Lee and Vic weren’t the only ones to love Top End Girl by Miranda Tapsell… Here is what the QBD crew thought:
As a young Larrakia Tiwi girl Miranda Tapsell often felt like an outsider. Growing up, she looked for faces like hers on our screens. There weren’t many. And too often there was a negative narrative around First Nation lives, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women especially. As she got older, Miranda stopped expecting others would help change things and set about doing something herself.
Top End Girl is both the funny, wise, hopeful story about one of Australia’s most beloved actresses, and the story of the importance of country and culture in Australia.
