A well made, well acted Australian drama
4 December 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Christopher Pate is terrific in his first major acting role. He stars as Jamie, a young man growing up in the small Australian town of Bundaberg during the early 1940's. Jamie loves his life, surrounded by friendly locals, and being brought up by his warm caring grandmother played by Geraldine Fitzgerald. But unfortunately, Jamie decides to leave for the city at the end of the Second World War. Great perfomances by all, including Gerard Kennedy as the 'nutty' preacher, and Robert Helpmann as the drunken professor who befriends Jamie. This scenic drama is beautifully filmed on locations around Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia, which is my hometown. I would recommend this film to anyone who would like to see a well acted Australian drama.
