It Was Incredible. It Was The Year That Changed Everything. Forever

Two future stars of Australian cinema, Noah Taylor (He Died With A Felafel in His Hand)  and Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom), anchor this coming-of-age tale that skilfully avoids cliché to deliver a raw and truthful portrait of adolescence. Director John Duigan masterfully balances the film's quirkier comedic moments with its more challenging and complex denunciation of small-town small mindedness and repression.

Danny (Noah Taylor) is a gawky 15-year-old, in love with his best friend, the beautiful and free-spirited Freya (Loene Carmen). They’re misfits in a country town in NSW in 1962. When Freya falls for Trevor (Ben Mendelsohn), football star and apprentice delinquent, Danny’s sexual longing turns to jealous confusion. As he tries to win her back, Danny uncovers a dark secret in the town’s past.

Saturday session includes a post-screening Q&A with star Loene Carmen.
