The Australian film that blitzed overseas box offices. It caused a near riot at the Cannes Film Festival and won an Academy Award®. It’s fun, daring, over-the-top and unforgettable.

“In this roaringly comic and powerfully affecting road movie, Terence Stamp gives one of the year’s best performances” Rolling Stone
