First screened in October 2019
Director: Shannon Murphy. Cast: Eliza Scanlen, Toby Wallace, Essie Davis, Ben Mendelsohn, Emily Barclay, Andrea Demetriades, Charles Gounds, Arka Das, Priscilla Doueihy. Screenplay: Rita Kalnejais (based on her novel).

Twitter Capsule: Camera vividly yet modestly attuned to plot and superb cast. Wise, funny script inhabits themes rather than blaring them.

VOR:   Another of Australia's fully imagined, colorfully mounted, and photographically inventive stories of female adolescence. What's their secret??
