The Black Balloon
Rhys Wakefield, Luke Ford, Gemma Ward, Erik Thomson, Toni Collette / Fiction / English
A witty, insightful drama, with outstanding performances.
As if first love and being the new boy in school weren’t enough to worry about, young Thomas must also control and confine the behaviour of his autistic brother, Charlie. With his mother (Toni Collette) about to give birth to a late baby, and his father taking on a new job, it’s left to Thomas to keep an eye on the brother he has come to resent. Featuring the impressive acting debut of the Aussie supermodel Gemma Ward.
