A Great Story About A Love Worth Fighting For With Superb Performances By Kylie Minogue & Charlie Schlatter
24 August 2015 | by (Ottawa, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie for the first time on you tube last week and found it to be a strong and moving love story. The Delinquents tells the tale of a young teenage couple in an Australian town in the 1950's who face opposition from parents, the law and other people for being together and in love.

Kylie Minogue is a talented individual not just in the music industry but also in acting as well, her portrayal of Lola Lovell was brilliant and heartfelt. Even though this is her first movie role she does a great job with the material given to work with.

Charlie Schlatter is sensitive and boyishly handsome as telegraph delivery boy Brownie Hansen, his character in the film is so sweet and his feelings so genuine.

What makes this story so unique is how the young couple fights to find a way to stay together despite forces trying to pull them apart time after time. Why this film has a rating of only 5.5/10 is surprising I'd give it a 6.4.
