Fifty-Fifty

Australia, 1986 (MIFF 1986)

Director: Carole Sklan

Flashing back and forth between the Fifties and the Eighties. the film explores with wit and panache the political and social connections between the two eras, converting a potential nostalgia trip into a sharply focused but entertaining analysis of the pressures placed on men and women then and now.
