An armoured car company is the target of repeated heists. Company leadership is enforcing new measures in order to tighten the security. However, the biggest danger of a new heist lies within the company's own ranks.
Meet Sue, a teenage Australian girl in the late 70s, whose life mainly consists of doing what everyone else does - watch the surfing boys and have sex with the same surfing boys. The girls have to follow lots of strange customs, e.g. do not eat or go to the bathroom when a boy is around. Ugly girls have two choices - being bitches and hate boys, or being generally cheap and looked down upon by everyone. The afternoons are spent on the beaches, in the backseats of car or at home-alone-parties where sex and alcohol are the main ingredients. Parents and teachers are trying to straighten the kids out, but that is not easy. Written by

As a 14 year old I saw a snippet of Puberty Blues and thought it was boring. Now more than 30 years later, I realise my 14 year old self was correct but for different reasons. It was "boring" because it was like watching a mirror image of my life, a life I was dissatisfied with, but ultimately trapped. Watching the movie in its entirety now it makes me realise that my life was normal, as that was just the way things were. It is depressing, but validating. I wonder how it got the funding to be made and what was the demographic that went to see it at the cinema? I for one didn't want to see my life on screen - you went to the cinema to escape, not relive what you already experienced. I give it an A for realism, for better or worse.
