Looking for Alibrandi
Kate Woods translates Melina Marchetta's award-winning rites-of-passage tale to the screen with warmth, humour and a down-to-earth charm that make this film a delight to watch.

Three generations of Italo-Australian women - Josie (Pia Miranda), her mother (Greta Scacchi) and grandmother (Elena Cotta) - traverse the daily dramas of life together in an operatic fashion.

Skilfully exploring issues of multiculturalism, family, class, and adolescence in Australia, Looking for Alibrandi features an astounding performance from Miranda, who conveys every nuance of the frustration, exasperation and suffering of a teenager coming to grips with her life, romances and family.

Winner of five AFI Awards, including Best Film.
