Vitalogy

Australia, 2001 (MIFF 2001, Fiction)

Director: Greg Williams

Lissa's new neighbours are freaks .They believe strongly in the power of lemons, and their 16-year-old son scrubs his feet before going to bed. He's definitely not the sort of boy a cool chick should be hanging around with. But he is a real live vitalogist and they don't grown on trees.
