$25 | Drama | Australia | Queensland Premiere

Simon Baker triumphantly returns to Australia with his directorial debut, bringing award-winning author Tim Winton’s iconic novel to the big screen. As well as directing, Baker co-wrote and starred in this warm and lyrical coming-of-age story set on the beaches of Western Australia in the 1970s.

As two young boys are introduced to the excitement of surfing after meeting an older pro-surfer and his wife, the early thrills quickly escalate into obsessions, both on sea and land. Narrated by Winton himself, this lovingly realised portrait of Australiana and growing up is an extraordinary debut from Baker.

Join director/producer/star Simon Baker and cast including Samson Coulter and Ben Spence on the Pacific Fair red carpet.
