Dir Jane Campion
With Emma Coles, Kris Bidenko, Kris McQuade
‘Tender, true and fresh’ is how Campion described Helen Garner’s script for this charming and devastating portrait of two schoolgirls’ fading friendship. Shot on 16mm for Australian TV, Campion’s remarkable but little-seen feature debut is alive to the boredom and insecurities of adolescence, and the pressures of family life. It also brims with visual experimentation – watch out for Campion’s exquisite animation.
