Cherry Bomb: 'Starstruck,' the Australian New Wave musical
New digital restoration from the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia!
Working at her mom's pub in Sydney, Jackie Mullens dreams of becoming a pop star. Desperate to get noticed, she's even willing to stage a nude tightrope stunt. She's got the talent to back up her antics, and the wild new wave look that is irresistible to music fans, so easily enough she finds a band and gets on a TV show. But do they have what it takes to make it all the way?
Following the success of MY BRILLIANT CAREER, Gillian Armstrong jumped from that period piece to the modern poof of 1982 with this incredibly charming musical that will have you wondering why star Jo Kennedy didn't take over the world after her performance.
