Satel­lite Boy

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

Pete (Cameron Wal­laby) lives with his grandpa (David Gulpilil) on the site of an aban­doned out­door cin­ema in re­mote Western Aus­tralia. He makes the most of it, lis­ten­ing to the old man’s sto­ries and learn­ing to hunt and track, but wishes his mum would come back. When a min­ing com­pany moves in and or­ders the cin­ema de­mol­ished, Pete fears Mum won’t be able to find them. He re­cruits a friend to join him on a long trip to the city to plead his case. They say: Wor­thy and un­apolo­getic com­ing-of-age tale di­rected and penned by Ca­tri­ona McKen­zie ( Red­fern Now) filmed against the re­mote and scenic Bun­gle Bun­gles. Wesay: Gulpilil re­vis­its the themes of his break­through film Walk­a­bout from the view of man. Sight un­seen it’s tough to call. Def­i­nitely work a look so you can de­cide for your­self. Run­ning time 90 min­utes. Screens at The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast.
