High Tide (1987)
Judy Davis re-teams with her My Brilliant Career director, Gillian Armstrong, in this award-winning, multi-generational Australian drama.
"The setting is Eden on the N.S.W. South Coast where Lilli (Judy Davis), a back-up singer for Elvis imitator Frankie J. Holden, becomes stranded with a broken-down car and little cash. Coincidentally, Ally (Claudia Karvan), the daughter she abandoned years earlier, is living with her grandmother, Bet (Jan Adele) in the local caravan park. Mother and daughter meet, while the grandmother agonises that the child will be exposed to emotional distress." (Sydney Film Festival)
