Backlash ★★½ 1986 (R)

An aborigine barmaid is raped. When her assailant turns up dead, she's charged with murder and winds up in the custody of two police officers on a trip across the outback. Holes in the plot undermine this interesting, although graphic, drama with racial overtones. 88m/C VHS . AU David Argue, Gia Carides, Lydia Miller, Brian Syron, Anne Smith; D: Bill Bennett; W: Bill Bennett; M: Michael Atkinson, Michael Spicer.
