Three families, the sexual revolution and a rotting whale – this wild and wacky comedy starring Guy Pearce and Kylie Minogue takes us back to 1970s Australia.Australia in 1975. Armed with a Super-8 camera, 14-year old Jeff is exploring the sleepy coastal resort where he lives and filming anything that moves. What he’s really interested in though is winning the heart of shy Melly. While Jeff clumsily attempts to get closer to the object of his desire and at the same time deal with the hormonal rollercoaster of puberty, his eccentric parents plunge headfirst into the summer of love with their neighbours. When a whale strands on the beach, things can only get weirder.
