Willie (Rocky Mackenzie), who lives in Broome, loves beautiful Rosie (Jessica Mauboy) but can't bring himself to approach her. Willie's mother sends him off to a boarding school in Perth run by strict Father Benedictus (Geoffrey Rush) -- but Willie runs away and heads for home accompanied by his uncle (Ernie Dingo).
Rachel Perkins' exuberant adaptation of the 1990 stage musical is a lot of fun, despite the fact that it has a rather insipid hero. The energetic staging of the musical numbers is just one of the engaging elements in a film filled with unexpected delights, such as the performances of Missy Higgins and Deborah Mailman, who are both excellent.
