There's something quite alluring and obviously personal about Clare Bowditch's selection, Gillian Armstrong's rarely seen 1987 Australian classic High Tide.
The film tells the story of Lilli (Judy Davis) - a soon to be out of work back-up singer for an Elvis impersonator - and her chance meeting with the adolescent Ally (Claudia Karvan) in a small coastal town.
With neither of the two really fitting in anywhere but together, they forge a unique relationship, which is explored through the lens of cinematographer Russell Boyd.
High Tide features great performances from Davis and Karvan, who are supported beautifully by Frankie J Holden and Colin Friels.
High Tide was nominated for seven AFI Awards on its release, winning two - with Judy Davis garnering Best Actress.
