From the Director of MY BRILLIANT CAREER - A Totally New Kind of Musical!
Three years after she rocked the movie industry with MY BRILLIANT CAREER, director Gillian Armstrong again brought the world to its feet with this unexpected musical comedy smash. Jo Kennedy stars as quirky young singer Jackie Mullens, who along with her 14-year-old manager/songwriter/ cousin Angus (Ross ODonovan) will go to any outrageous lengths to chase their dreams of pop stardom. Oscar® winner Geoffrey Rush (SHINE, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN) makes one of his very first screen appearances in this acclaimed combination of delightful old-school story and explosive new wave musical that was nominated for three Australian Academy Awards including Best Original Music Score and features songs by Tim Finn and Phil Judd of legendary pop-rock band Split Enz.

kooky and funny with a lot of catchy tunes. It embodies the 80's alternative scene. I loved this movie when I was a kid.Published 21 months ago by Dorian Rush Reardon
Quirky, fun Australian movie complete with catchy music. An early Gillian Armstrong offering. Can still visit the pub in Sydney where the movie is located. Enjoy!Published on April 28, 2013 by Kate Lyons-Dawson
