Time Out says

An intelligent script, based on an anonymous autobiography, and charting the struggles of an independent woman in Depression-era Australia, gets an unfortunate sentimentalising gloss from Crombie's direction, which attempts to realign essentially tough-minded material with the prevalent trend to retro prettiness. Morse is fine as the abandoned wife who becomes a barmaid to support herself and her two kids, though her retention of plucky charm under her 'deviate' circumstances rings a little too good to be true.
