The More Things Change Details


In this Australian entry into the early 1980s sub-genre of films dealing with families rejecting contemporary society for a life of freedom and non-conformity (, ), an Australian family tries to leave the suburbs and start afresh in the country. Connie (Judy Morris) and Lex (Barry Otto) are a happily married couple with a young son. They decide to leave the hustle and bustle of the city and purchase a farm two hours away from the city's noise. The problem is that Connie and Otto are not independently wealthy, and, until their farm becomes self-sufficient, one of them has to keep commuting into town to work. One solution to their dilemma is to hire a live-in baby-sitter. Connie hires Geraldine (Victoria Longley) and then their troubles really begin. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
