Storyline

Georgie, 12, is growing up in Sydney's Western suburbs in the 1970's. She's a tomboy, creative, and a dreamer; but always lives just outside herself and never quite in the present. She creates a magical underwater world to escape paternal abuse, and dreams of sharing this magical world, and the secret beneath it, with her best friend, Lisa. Lisa is in many ways Georgie's opposite: quieter, girlish, at home in her world; but she realizes that Georgie is hiding some silent hurt, and is willing to do anything for her. Written by lament

A Beautifully Directed And Haunting Short
18 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

I saw this short last night on SBS's Shorts On Screen.

I found it to be very haunting.

The film is beautifully directed and well acted especially by the young lead actress.

If you can get your hands on it, it is definitely worth watching.

The story is told well, sometimes leaving to the imagination while still being conclusive.

It switches back and forth between 'present' and past so the sequence of events slowly comes together.

I really liked it even if it was really sad.

It really effected me.

SBS is doing a great job showing all these short films (even if they are on rather late).
