BLINKY BILL: THE MOVIE ★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by Deane Tay­lor Voices of Ryan Kwan­ten, Ru­fus Sewell, Toni Col­lette, David Wen­ham, Richard Roxburgh, obin McLeavy, Barry Otto, Barry Humphries Blinky Bill is a smart-mouthed koala cre­ated in the early 1930s by the Aus­tralian chil­dren’s au­thor and il­lus­tra­tor Dorothy Wall. The naughty mar­su­pial has al­ready en­joyed al­most a cen­tury of celebrity: he joined the Aus­tralian army as a mas­cot in a 1940 ad­ven­ture, graced a postage stamp in 1985 and was adopted as a tal­is­man by the Aus­tralian Repub­li­can Move­ment in 1993. His first big movie is a per­fectly de­cent en­ter­tain­ment with top-flight, down-un­der voice work. G cert, gen re­lease, 87 min TB
