|Summer of the Seventeenth Doll |
Based on Ray Lawler's groundbreaking play, Summer of the Seventeenth Doll
follows two canecutters from north Queensland.
Roo (Ernest Borgnine) and Barney (John Mills), for the last sixteen years, have spent their layoff season in Sydney with their barmaid girlfriends.
As their seventeenth summer fails to capture the old magic, the film tackles the sentiment at the heart of the play, the passing of a cherished dream.
