This favourite film

Hooray for Miss Hollie Hokey for suggesting this week's theme. My favourite film is this one from 1987:

Hopefully these clips will give you a sense of the setting of the film, a small Aussie country town in the 1960's. I can relate to this film a lot, I love the characters, the teenage angst, the struggle to be an individual in a small town where fitting in and doing what your parents did is the norm, and the sense of isolation and yearning that Danny (Noah Taylor) feels. So much Aussie goodness... And as a bonus, it has Ben Mendelsohn in it, who I adore!

"This is..." brought to you by Three Butttons.
