Dispossessed is a striking verse novella by a major Australian poet, Philip Hodgins. It offers a lyrical but melancholy portrait of life on the land. Its major characters are about to be dispossessed of their property through a bank foreclosure: as they confront this and other grim aspects of the rural life, their own relationships begin to break down too. This study guide provides background on the author and director, as well as contextual information about the 'grammar' of film, before offering a summary and detailed explication of the movie. It includes thorough notes on characters and themes, as well as critical references and model answers.
