Eight years after the trailblazing My Brilliant Career, Armstrong and Judy Davis collaborated once more on this emotionally rich multi-generational drama.
Davis plays a back-up singer who, when left stranded in a seaside village on the NSW coast, re-encounters the daughter she abandoned years earlier. Skirting clear of any hint of cheap sentimentality, care of Laura Jones’ (An Angel at My Table) penetrating script, this raw and affective film evocatively expresses the painful reality of fractured relationships. Davis and co-star Jan Adele won AFI Awards.
