Amy Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Nadia Tass directed this Australian comedy-drama about deaf-mute Amy (nine-year-old singer-recording artist Alana De Roma), traumatized by seeing her rock-star father Will (Nick Barker) killed in an electrical accident at an outdoor concert during a rainstorm. His widow Tanya (Rachel Griffiths) retreats with Amy to an outback farm, but child welfare officers force a return to Melbourne for Amy's education. They move into a shabby house in a working-class neighborhood of losers where they meet musician Robert (Ben Mendelsohn), battered neighbor Sarah Armstrong (Kerry Armstrong) and her son Zac (Jeremy Trigatti), Zac's alcoholic father Bill Trendle (William Zappa), two slow-witted brothers (Torquil Neilson, Sullivan Stapleton), grouchy Mrs. Mullins (Mary Ward), and Robert's sister (Susie Porter). Amy was shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
