Puberty Blues

Based on the novel of the same name, "Puberty Blues" traces the adventures of Debbie (Nell Schofield) and her life-long companion Sue (Jad Capelja), two teenagers desperately trying to break into the "in" group who dominate Greenhill beach. Once they are accepted into the group, they realise that the laid-back, ultra-cool facade is just that: a glossy cover-up. As they fall into all of the group's vices, including drug-usage and casual sex, they willingly present themselves to the males of the group as virtual slaves, ready to serve their pre-chosen lover's every need. Soon, though, the girls grow tired of playing the victim role, and they work to regain respect and equality. "Puberty Blues" is the ultimate Australian Beach Classic. Songs by Tim Finn; Directed by Bruce Beresford.
