Adjewa), Nicole Kidman (Nicole Radcliffe)
John Duigan's coming-of-age drama is a follow-up to his
previous film The Year My Voice Broke, telling the story of a clandestine romance between a precocious male student at a conservative boarding school and a Ugandan girl at a neighbouring
all-girl's school that is equally staid.
Bittersweet and affectionate without being particularly
memorable, featuring a pair of good performances from it's two leads.
Nicole Kidman may get top billing, but she's very much a
supporting character with on of her very early screen performances.
