Sensitive, lovely, bitter-sweet, coming-of-age, feel-good film
22 October 1999 | by Darwin-9See all my reviews

This is a beautifully filmed work with excellent performers and an engaging story. The characters are sensitively developed by the director (Hume) and the cinematography is almost distractingly lush - the film has a distinct "look". I saw it at the Toronto Festival where it seemed to be enthusiastically received by an audience of mixed ages. It is very enjoyable and should be seen.
