The Year My Voice Broke Movie Review

Interesting and pretty, but not altogether satisfying story of the coming of age of a young Australian boy and the slightly older girl he adores (and who turns out to be a bit of a slut). Nice effort from Duigan, and a smashing introduction by Noah Taylor, who would fly so high in Shine.
