Dir. Gillian Armstrong. 1982, 94 mins. DCP. With Jo Kennedy, Ross O’Donovan, Margo Lee, Max Cullen, Pat Evison, John O’May. A young working-class woman dreams of being a pop singer, while living and working in her family’s struggling pub in The Rocks, under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Aided by her media-savvy teenage cousin, and deploying various shrewd antics, she ultimately crashes a popular talent competition. With its vibrant ’80s new wave video aesthetic, this light-hearted musical comedy displayed Armstrong’s commitment to stories of women’s self-determination and creative versatility across different milieu.
