This is such a delightful film! Suzanne Parrett, as the young Eileen Joyce, is enchanting. This is a finely crafted film; the images, vernacular and social settings are iconic of Australia at that time, the middle 1920s. Each scene is beautifully composed and captures the landscape and characters perfectly. It is guaranteed to pull at your heartstrings as Eileen navigates through the minefield of adult skepticism in a tough economic environment. Hope is maintained by her meetings with a sympathetic swagman, an inspiring pianist in a piano shop and the rough but appreciative miners in Boulder. This wonderful film stands up there with A Bush Christmas, The Overlanders and Smiley as an Aussie classic.
