Rated 2 out of 5 by from Twee version of life in the 50s I was looking forward to this film, as a child of a refo and who grew up in Sydney in the 50s and 60s - but this film, based on a book and play, was little more than Home and Away goes retro. Banal plot, not very believable characters, poor script and average acting. The production designers tried hard but perhaps a bit too hard - nothing looked natural. Wanted to like it but nothing rang true. Angourie Rice an Julia Ormond were wasted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent !!! This fabulous film is really a social commentary on life in the 50's and 60's in Australia . Bruce Beresford covers so many important issues in a subtle, engaging, truthful and amusing manner. It is a joy to watch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable trip back in time I had read about this film and was very interested in seeing it, as it seemed to disappear from cinemas very quickly. I enjoyed all the performances and especially the 'look' of the past and not a swear word in sight. The dvd quality was very good but disappointingly there were no extras at all. There should have been something about how they were about to replicate the Sydney of yesterday ay so effectively.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trip down Memory Lane What a great trip to the way Australia was...enjoyed every second. The ensemble cast was terrific..Sights and sounds of the fifties.very different to how we are now.Migrants coming with their new taste and cultural differences making for great changes..my late parents were from Hungary..so pulled a lot of heart strings for me....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An okay story line I bought this movie because I saw the previews on tv and thought it would be quite good. Missed seeing it at the cinema. It was an average movie and a little disappointing.
