Mature picture from Australia that features a young Russell Crowe making friends with a jaded blind man (Hugo Weaving, of Matrix notoriety) who has a quirky hobby: photography. Although the picture is all philosophy and metaphors (Crowe's job is telling Weaving what is on the photographs, Weaving has to believe him - it's all about trust) it never becomes heavy-handed - if you want to nitpick you could question some of the characters' seemingly illogical decisions and mention how the plot unfolds a little too neatly. The entire cast is exceptional, however, not to mention Geneviève Picot, whose creepy housemaid character is bound to infuriate you.
