FREEDOM (1982) (OZPLOITATION CLASSICS) (RELEASING APRIL 3)
From the award-winning director of Shine, Scott Hicks, comes this seminal Australian road movie tracing one man's search for speed..and freedom. Ron (Jon Blake - Anzacs, The Lighthorsemen) is an angry young man with few work prospects having been sacked from his latest factory job. Rebelling against a society that offers him little hope, he lapses into fantasies of driving the highway in a sports car with a beautiful girl and decides finally to steal the Porsche of his dreams. Ron escapes onto the open road and along the way meets the errant Sally (Jad Capelja - Puberty Blues), who wants to retrieve her baby sent to live with foster parents. Chased by the law and their own demons, both risk all in a last attempt to fulfil their dreams. This retro Australian film classic features an all-star cast including Charles Bud Tingwell (Innocence), Chris Haywood (Jindabyne) and Candy Raymond (Don's Party), while the fast-paced soundtrack was composed by Cold Chisel's Don Walker.
