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 boy at a boarding school and a Ugandan girl at a neighbouring all-girl's school.
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.
