|The F.J. Holden|
Filmed in 1976 and released the following year as something of a drive-in sensation, director Michael Thornhill affectionately portrays the everyday world of 1970s Australian suburbia, with its shopping malls, all-you-can-eat hotel eateries, drunken parties and permissive sex, as a way of life for young bogans in the 'tween years of their lives.
Buoyed by the infectious enthusiasm of the characters - Kevin (Paul Couzens), Bob (Carl Stever), Anne (Eva Dickinson) - The F.J. Holden
has considerable merit for its honest portrayal of an era. Features Sigrid Thornton in her first film appearance.
