A Model Daughter: The Killing Of Caroline Byrne

 (24)
1 h 34 min201216+
Based on the true story of beautiful young Australian model Caroline Byrne, who tragically met her death in 1995. She was found at the bottom of the high cliffs of "the Gap"; a notorious suicide spot in Sydney. But soon suspicion arose about her very controlling boyfriend, and the deeper investigators looked into her case, the less likely it seemed that she jumped voluntarily.

I had not heard of this case that happened in Australia in the 1990s but you don't have to in order to follow this story line. This is about a suicide that wasn't a suicide, a father's endless hunt for the killer of his daughter and about emotional abuse (gaslighting) in a relationship between a dominant guy and his too willing to believe that he's a good guy girlfriend. I'm glad that her dad got to find some form of closure, although the whodunnit hadn't been solved up to the point of the making of this film. For his sake I hope that this has now been solved. It's been acted really well and - as a fan of Heartbreak High in the 90s - I found myself pleasantly surprised by the appearances of some of its cast members ("Hey, it's Ryan!" "Hey, it's Con!" etc). But this didn't hinder the story.

very sad true story
Verified purchase
True Story and a very sad film .
When she fell to her death she screamed . Witnesses heard her scream . People do not scream when committing suicide . This was not outlined in the case
She was either thrown or was trying to run away from someone and fell off .
After watching this it is obvious who killed her
I feel sorry for her family

enjoyable film with a hateable baddie
Verified purchase
I enjoyed this film. It is pretty low budget but solid overall. I kept finding myself thinking the acting was terrible at the beginning and then realising that we are supposed to think that as one of the main characters is lying and doing a pretty poor job of acting a part. This makes him a thoroughly dislikable character that I enjoyed watching squirm and dig holes for himself. Nothing like seeing a really bad guy get his just desserts. The fact that it's all a true story made me give it a chance in the beginning and at the end I was really glad I'd watched it all the way through.

He was not guilty arguably .
Verified purchase
Very good . But it does not follow up with the fact that three judges released him and quashed his conviction .
It seems that arguably he was innocent . This is a film so it will be fashioned to make Wood look like a bad guy . I cannot decide either way as there was evidence to suggest she was depressed and could of committed suicide .
The film is worth watching either way .

Low budget but worth a look
Verified purchase
I like films based on fact and this true story is fascinating. Control freak boyfriend comes across as mr nice guy, but bit by bit, his truth is exposed as lies. His girlfriend falls over a wall and into a river. Did she fall, was she pushed or did sh commit suicide. Any of these is possible and it’s up to the viewer to watch for signals to decide where the truth lies. Her father was indomitable in pressing for the truth and pestering the police. Well worth a look.

A very sad story :-(
Verified purchase
I've given this 5 stars based on the fact it's well written and well acted and as I think it may help others see the warning signs of personality disorders, but the truth is I couldn't watch it past 30 mins as it made me on fire with anger!
Who the hell does that jumped up piece of narcissistic **** think he is?!! I'm so enraged.
My thoughts go out to poor Caroline Byre and her family.

Amateur hour

What a shocker! The story is tragic, the treatment by this writer and director is just as tragic. It is utterly dreadful. I only watched to the end to assure myself I was justified saying this useless shower should never be let near a film set ever again! My film students produce better on no budget.

watchable

and again the same old situation of a woman putting up with crap from a new boyfriend and making excuses. Why? because they see it in their own household no doubt. The only person I felt for in the entire movie was the poor father. Watch it, but be prepared for female stupidity to be displayed and nothing to do with 'the time' no woman should put up with a bloke telling her to shut up even which is how it starts.
