Quote about The Girl from God's Country

"It would, of course, be extremely intersting to see The Girl from God's Country, particularly in relation to questions of the representation of race and cultural identity, for in the film Shipman takes the part of an 'other' for the first time in her films."
-- Kay Armatage (source)
