Australia: August 15th, 1991…

Today is the anniversary of the Australian release date for the movie Proof in which Russell Crowe appeared opposite Hugo Weaving (Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit Trilogy, The Matrix Trilogy).

IMDB describes it as: Black comedy about a blind man, Martin, who takes photographs as “proof” that the world really is as others describe it to him. The film explores his antagonistic relationships with Celia, who cleans and cooks for him and habitually rearranges the furniture in the house, and with Andy, a mate he thinks he can trust.

The movie gets a 7.4 out of 10 on IMDB and 94% on Rotten Tomatoes. It was the winner of six Australian Film Institute awards, including Best Film, Best Director (Jocelyn Moorhouse), Best Actor (Hugo Weaving) and Best Supporting Actor (Russell Crowe).
