AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Australia, 1975. The beach suburb of Dee Why is a place that revolves around surf mats, baby oil, boxed wine and the new miracle of Kentucky Fried Chicken. 14 year-old Jeff tries to find his feet in a world changing faster than his hormones, and deal with his crush on shy and sensitive girl-next-door Melly. When the beach town suddenly hits the spotlight after the body of a 200-ton whale is washed ashore, Jeff and Melly think it's the biggest thing that ever happened in their lives. Meanwhile, their eccentric parents are catching up with the sexual revolution that has also washed up on Australia's beaches. And just like the decaying whale, it's all about to go spectacularly wrong.' (Production summary)

Even by Elliott’s standards (his best-known films are Priscilla: Queen of the Desert and Welcome to Woop Woop) it is completely batshit crazy, depicting a view of the 70s rife with booze, sun, surf and sex.'  (Introduction)
