Trivia

Prior to principal photography, director John Sheedy said: "I am thrilled to be returning to WA [Western Australia] for my directorial debut. Having spent several years in Perth creating theatrical works for young people and families, it seems very fitting." He added: "I am equally delighted to have the opportunity to work with producers Julie Ryan of Cyan Films, Tenille Kennedy and screenwriter and producer Lisa Hoppe who has constructed a hilariously quirky and moving script that is sure to resonate with any child or family that feels different. I look forward to re-engaging in the assembly of local talented actors and creatives and spending time in Albany which is the perfect backdrop to bring this story to the screen." See more »

User Reviews

 
Do not judge the movie by the trailer
16 April 2020 | by Hamlet2See all my reviews

This is a wonderful movie that I understand did badly in the cinemas. The trailer was possibly the worst ever seen in this country. It gave the viewer no indication whatever of the storyline or contents. The movie is funny, sad and offbeat and the locations are wonderful. There are several spectacular and totally unpredictable action sequences. I highly recommend "H" to all age groups.
