Monday Movies.


16 year old Thomas Mollison (Rhys Wakefield) has many issues to deal with. His dad (Erik Thompson) is in the army and the family has just moved to a new town; his mum (Toni Collette) is pregnant and his older brother, Charlie (Luke Ford) is austic. Thomas meets and falls for Jackie (Gemma Ward), from school, but because Charlie is embarrasing for him this causes obstacles, paricularly when Jackie drops round to their house, when the three kids go for a walk in the bush and when she comes round for a birthday dinner. Can Thomas enter into the world of teen romances or will having to look after Charlie get in the way of his life?

Wow! I found this a really beautiful and powerful movie. I especially loved that it was another Australian movie. I also loved that it dealt with issues that are in the world but not necessarily in the public eye. I really reccomend that you see this movie.
