"This movie is joyous, wise and life-affirming, and certainly one of the year's best films." – Roger Ebert
The Australian coming-of-age classic returns to the big screen in a glorious new restored print. Noah Taylor, Nicole Kidman and Thandie Newton are the luminous stars of a tale set in 1965. Awkward 17-year-old Danny lives at St. Albans, a strict rural boarding school. Across the lake lies Cirencester Ladies’ College, home to Ugandan-English boarder Thandiwe. Their road to romance is wonderfully funny, uncommonly touching and achingly truthful.
