Biopic of Susan Cabot, a B-movie star known for her roles in Roger Corman movies and dating a king. Her career suffered due to her short stature and her frustration with her son's medical condition - dwarfism - led to tragedy.
Australia, 1975. The beach suburb of Nobbys Beach is a place that revolves around surf mats, baby oil, boxed wine and the new miracle of Kentucky Fried Chicken. 14 year-old Jeff tries to find his feet in a world changing faster than his hormones, and deal with his crush on shy and sensitive girl-next-door Melly. When the beach town suddenly hits the spotlight after the body of a 200-ton whale is washed ashore, Jeff and Melly think it's the biggest thing that ever happened in their lives. Meanwhile, their eccentric parents are catching up with the sexual revolution that has also washed up on Australia's beaches. And just like the decaying whale, it's all about to go spectacularly wrong.
A movie that looks back at life in the 1970's at an Australian beach side town! Sound like it could be a fun film? Unfortunately a good concept is totally wasted in this mess of a movie. The parents characters are played with a bad case of over acting, and the children are portrayed as mostly dimwits. The story bounces around with no direction or real purpose. The scene where the two sets of parents arrange their 14 year old kids date night is disgusting. I grew up in the 1970's and feel really let down by this poorly constructed movie.
