Trivia

Intended to be the Australian-born Nicole Kidman's farewell to Australian cinema; by the time the film went into production, she had received international acclaim for her part in Dead Calm (1989), and was being courted by US studios to appear in American productions. She wouldn't star in another Australian film for another decade, (Moulin Rouge! (2001)). As a result of Kidman's fame, she received top billing and was prominently featured in print advertising for the film, despite only appearing in a few scenes. Conversely, star Noah Taylor appeared in print ads only in silhouette. See more »

Quotes

Nicola Radcliffe: So what did you actually do together?
Thandiwe Adjewa: I beg your pardon?
Nicola Radcliffe: No, it's all right. You don't have to tell me. I think... if I liked somebody enough... I'd want to...
Thandiwe Adjewa: Have you ever?
Nicola Radcliffe: Of course not.
Thandiwe Adjewa: Almost?
Nicola Radcliffe: Well... Do you remember the young guy who was fixing the bell tower? I used to take him a cup of tea each morning before assembly. I rather liked him even though he never said anything much. I used to... close my eyes... and sit on a chair... and let him touch me all over... as long as he promised ...

Usually only known for Nicole Kidman, but so much more!
24 January 2005 | by (Wonder Lake, IL) – See all my reviews

This is a fantastic coming of age story. Noah Taylor as Danny Embling is brilliant. Thandie Newton and Nicole Kidman also do a wonderful job (Plus both are walking dreams) This movie definitely surpasses The Year My Voice Broke. It makes a giant leap in the quality of the picture and writing. Of course that's not to say that The Year My Voice Broke wasn't also very good, but this sequel adds much more to the tales that are coming of age stories. This movie not only follows up on how Danny Embling is doing, but it also shows a female perspective of growing up. The way Noah Taylor and Thandie Newton react to one another as their characters is exactly the way most of probably wish we could with our own first loves. They are without fear of each other.
