Movie Info

Director Bruce Beresford continued his tradition of putting socially disenfranchised characters front and center with this wryly observant comedy drama about middle class Australian teens that served as a stark contrast to the popular American teen films of its day.

Audience Reviews for Puberty Blues

Watching this film just makes me think thank Christ I was an unpopular teenager. Being in the in group could surely not be worth what these girls go through!
A true to life Aussie classic that I first saw in my teens and many times since. Still relevant to teens today although I sure hope things have changed (doubt it). The new tv series based on this is also good, but this is the original and best.

A slow, boring, semi-documentary of teenagers in Australia. Nothing really happens until the end, and that was so annoying. I didn't care for this movie, and I don't recommend seeing this movie.
