Storyline

Alma can't stand to have one more birthday without seeing her estranged daughter, Elizabeth, who lives in Sydney, Australia. But Alma doesn't fit into her daughter's political-hostess life even for a visit, and she finds more sympathy in her granddaughter. Alma, in a burst of rebellion, buys a supercharged hotrod and sets out on a voyage of self-discovery to Melbourne--if she can remember to stay on the left side of the road. Along the way, she meets con artists, gangsters, and a ponytailed white-knight in a camper and she finds not only adventure and romance, but also the courage to go back and face her relationship with her daughter and set it right. Written by Kathy Li

This is one of my all-time favourites. I like Olympia Dukakis, Derek Fowlds and Sigrid Thornton, but apart from that, it's a romp, a lesson in how NOT to treat your oldies and there are glorious views of Australian outback thrown in. Never too serious, never too flippant, and with characters I warmed to straight away (as opposed to hating everyone like other reviewers), I kept waiting for something monstrous to happen the first time, but it didn't, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Watched it several times and will undoubtedly watch it again. It's a mildly humorous story of somebody rebelling in a very gentle way.

We need it on DVD though!
