|The Heartbreak Kid|
Alex Dimitriades burns up the screen in his feature film debut. When high school teacher Christine (Claudia Karvan) falls for the charms of 17-year-old student Alex (Dimitriades) all hell breaks loose.
Skillfully adapted from Richard Barrett's play, the film presents a vision of a multicultural Australia that was, at the time, rarely captured in feature films.
A box office success upon its release, the film featured many prominent actors, including Steve Bastoni and William McInnes, and led to the popular spin-off television series Heartbreak High
