If you loved "The Dish" you HAVE to check this out!!!
Kangaroo Palace was one of those films (ok, technically its a mini series) that never leaves you when its over. This is one of the best Australian TV productions I have seen.
The story follows three young Australians travelling to London in the time of the swinging sixties. One wants adventure, one wants a career, and one wants to escape his fiance - just for a while - to make it on his own.
Starring the beautiful Jackie McKenzie (Deep Blue Sea, Romper Stomper) and Rebecca Gibney (Halifax MD, Flying Doctors) its really the story of boy meets girl, only to have her break his heart.
This might not sound anything new, but to anyone who has travelled and experienced love and loss whilst away from home, can really be touched by this film. Add to the fact that I once was in love with a girl very much like Jackie McKenzie's character, and experienced the same sort of loss, it has a personal significance to me.
Set in the 60s, and with some wonderful Aussie characters (not at all stereotypical) the comparison to The Dish is obvious. Great people, great music, great times.
Watch it, love it.
