The latest release and volume #16 for our Sunburnt Screens collection is the teen classic Puberty Blues. This Blu-ray release includes special features.
Puberty Blues traces the lives of two adolescent females who have spent the first part of their lives in a group by themselves, while desperately trying to break into the "in" crowd who dominate the Greenhill beach. Once they are accepted into the group, they realise that the group's laid-back, ultra-cool facade is just that: a glossy cover-up.
The main protagonist, Debbie (Nell Schofield), and her life-long companion Sue (Jad Capelja) fall into all of the group's vices, including drug usage and casual sex. At first, they willingly present themselves to the males of the group as virtual slaves, ready to serve their pre-chosen lover's every need. Soon, though, the girls grow tired of occupying the victim role, and they work to regain respect and equality.
