The Melbourne Cinémathèque & ACMI present

Starstruck

Gillian Armstrong | Australia | | PG
Film

In her debut role, Jo Kennedy plays as an energetic singer who spends her days working behind a bar, entertaining dreams of becoming a big star.

Fully embracing the category of Australian rock musicals inspired by the fantasies of classical Hollywood – with a kitschy punk twist – Armstrong’s sophomore feature remains one of her most undervalued films. Armstrong embraces the spectacle of the genre; with dazzling choreography, location cinematography around Sydney Harbour, and a soundtrack by The Swingers and Tim Finn of Split Enz.
