McPhee Gribble (1979)

With Kathy Lette

A seminal narrative of teenage life in 70′s Australia, Puberty Blues is about top chicks and surfie spunks and the kids who don’t quite make the cut: it recreates with fascinating honesty a world where only the gang and the surf count. At once hilarious and horrifying, this painfully honest account of the way many teenagers live — and some die — is as painfully true today as it ever was.
