Adapted from the play by Louis Nowra, Rachel Perkin's warm and beautifully constructed debut feature follows three very different sisters (Trisha Morton-Thomas, Rachael Maza and Deborah Mailman), who are reunited at the death of their mother.

Strong, complex, and cinematically intriguing, Radiance resounds with energy and spirit. As the girls come together the sparks fly - sparks which soon spit and crackle into a much bigger fire altogether as secrets are revealed, alliances are unlocked and family ties are slowly unravelled.

'An engrossing film, often highly entertaining as well as thought provoking.and saturated with humanity.' Urban Cinefile
