THE AUSSIE COMING OF AGE FILM STARRING NELL SCHOFIELD &amp JAD CAPELJA                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Adapted from the popular novel by Gabrielle Carey and Kathy Lette, Puberty Blues traces the lives of two adolescent females who have spent the first part of their lives in a group by themselves, while desperately trying to break into the 'in-crowd' who dominate the Greenhill beach. Once accepted into the group, they realise the laid-back, ultra-cool facade is just that: a glossy cover-up. As Debbie (Nell Schofield) and her life-long companion Sue (Jad Capelja) are drawn into the group's many vices, including drug-usage and casual sex, they begin to realise there might be more to life and set out to regain respect and equality.
Directed by Bruce Beresford (Mao's Last Dancer, Driving Miss Daisy), Puberty Blues is presented in a stunning new high-definition transfer and includes up-to-date special features produced exclusively for this release, diving deep into the 70s Australian social landscape to deliver a classic coming of age tale.
