The Year My Voice Broke

Year: 1987
Director: John Duigan
Cast: Noah Taylor, Ben Mendelsohn, Leone Carmen
Paints an attractive and earthy picture of small town rural Australia in the 50's more so than tells an interesting story. A young kid (Taylor) is infatuated by a girl (Carmen) with a bad reputation owing to shadowy lineage. The story follows his coming of age from the point of view of his unrealised romance and finishes admirably, having delivered a great script and great performances from some Australian actors at the pinnacle of their craft. If you've heard that it's an unrequited love story you'll expect a lot more teenage frustration and tears than there are.
