The best of its type.
8 January 2001 | by markrbryantSee all my reviews

Being lucky enough to own a copy of this film, I watch it frequently and am always moved by its tender coming of age tale about Gino (Vince Colisimo) struggling to find a balance between the freedoms in Australia and the conflicting conservative shackles of the ways of the "old country".

Due to the large amount of post-war European migration to Australia, this kind of story has almost become a genre in itself, yet "Moving Out" stands alone in its brilliance.

The plight of Gino is a common one as he struggles to fit in, both with the Aussies at school, who call him soccer-jock, and with his father who feels the freedoms in Australia are a negative thing, leading him away from his studies.

One can't help feeling that Gino's story extends in a way to all people regardless of background as he struggles to find his place in the world.

This movie is amazing and an excellent time capsule into early 80's Aussie life.

A must see for all.
