Annie's Coming Out
Based on a true story of the real life relationship between Rosemary Crossley and Anne McDonald from whose book the film is adapted, Annie's Coming Out dramatises the plight of Annie O'Farrell, a physically disabled child who is wrongly diagnosed as mentally retarded.

Social worker Jessica Hathaway (Angela Punch McGregor in a highly charged performance) takes up her case and determines to rescue the child from the institution to which she has been committed.

Winner of three AFI awards, Annie's Coming Out is a truly inspiring story of an imprisoned mind released.
