Mark Joffe's Capra-esque homage to old-fashioned corporate paternalism encompasses the discovery of basic human needs from the vantage point of two separate generations and social classes.

The legendary Anthony Hopkins is productivity expert Errol Wallace, assigned to modernise a quaint, family-run moccasin factory in the Melbourne suburb of Spotswood.

The eccentricities of the characters (including Toni Collette, Ben Mendelsohn and Russell Crowe), and the nostalgia of Chris Kennedy and Tess Schofield's flawless production and costume design make this a highly entertaining and very gratifying film.
