It's about time!! I have waited for this movie to come to DVD for many years! The movie is not a masterpiece but it is a pretty accurate portrayal of life in my neck of the woods and probably for many other Aussies regardless of where they hail from. It is certainly a good idea of what it was like growing up in the western suburbs. This movie is a gem and I love it because it reminds me of a simpler time.. when going to Bankie (or simply the square) was the place to be. All in all it evokes many happy memories of growing up in Australia in the 70's. The soundtrack isn't too bad either. I originally discovered this movie in the mid eighties and it has held a sentimental place ever since.
