Storyline

16-year-old Claudia has grown up in isolation from the outside world. Stranded on a remote property after her mother's death, she is shocked when Grace, a spirited local teen, appears in the garden like a mirage, a breath of fresh, sugary air. The pair find in each other the support, love and intimacy they need, and teach each other the restorative power of human connection. But their idyllic peace is a fragile one as the adult world closes in and threatens their secret summer love. Headlining some of Australia's brightest young talent, Markella Kavenaugh (Romper Stomper) and Adelaide's own Maiah Stewardson (Windmill, STC, Patch), My First Summer takes girls seriously and sensitively.

Worn out premise
31 March 2021 | by icdrgonSee all my reviews

Worn out story that has been told so many times they cannot be counted. This film promises to be a fresh approach and falls woefully short, at least if the acting had been adequate there would be something hope for it, and the direction was not any better. If this had been in the hands of a someone with talent there might have been something here.
