Joy

Australia, 2000 (MIFF 2000, Fiction)

Director: Cate Shortland

Thursday night. Late night shopping. Joy wants to have fun. A glimpse at a teenage girl's life; the glitter of the shopping mall mecca and the pull of friends, intersected by the familiar commands that are meant to instill a sense of discipline but only make you want to get further away. Sometimes parents should be seen and not heard.
