Flirting

Synopsis

Two outsiders befriend one another at boarding school. Romantic drama starring Noah Taylor and Thandie Newton.

About

Fred Schepisi directed the definitive portrait of Australian boarding school life with his 1974 debut The Devil's Playground. In more gentle style his fellow Aussie Duigan has tackled the subject with success in The Year My Voice Broke and this even softer sequel also starring the excellent and convincing Taylor as Danny. He's a non-athletic, sensitive lad who consequently suffers ridicule at the hands of his peers. Solace is found in the charming person of Thandiwe (Newton) who is alienated at her nearby girls' school because of race. Truthful and compassionate.
