The Year My Voice Broke

By John Duigan

Australia/1987/103 min


Danny and Freya have been friends since they were little children, and now that they’re becoming young adults, Danny’s feelings for her are becoming sexual. Freya, though, turns her attention to Trevor, a charismatic rugby player and occasional car thief. Danny’s jealousy is tempered by the fact that Trevor seems like a genuinely decent guy. The three misfits become allies against the bullies in their small Australian town.

Get ready for a sizzling saga of love, betrayal, and hidden truths that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Winner of 5 AFI Awards, John Duigan’s highly acclaimed and much loved coming-of-age story is one of the Australian film industry’s most memorable movies.
