Storyline

Leanne "Pia Miranda" is training to be a teacher in 1971 Adelaide, but she is more interested in seeing life through the lens of her camera. To make matters worse, she has to suffer the indignities of living at home with her parents "Heather Mitchell and Marshall Napier". Her older sister Bronwyn "Sacha Horler" is finding it difficult to adjust to married life in remote Yallaroo with her husband Brian "Tamblyn Lord" and runs away. Then, visiting American hip poet Lou "Brett Stiller" comes to town, urging all to 'seek out the light'.The younger generation embraces the challenge enthusiastically, and Leanne's neighbor Gary "Tim Draxl" and her friend Debra "Anna Torv", are drawn to Lou.

Travelling Light fails to ignite the screen
17 September 2003 | by strangieSee all my reviews

Set in the early 70s, Travelling Light follows the story of two sisters growing up in surburban Adelaide.

Leanne is thoroughly uninspired by the idea of becoming a teacher and thinks that she would be a better photographer than a teacher. Bronwyn would much prefer to back teaching than being a housewife. Enter hippy American poet, Lou, to shake things up.

This is a meanderingly slow film with very few shadows and most of the time the cast look bemused trying to do their best with the screenplay (though there is one very funny inspired scene with Ray Sugars (Simon Burke) as a 70s singing/TV personality). An interesting look back to the 70s but not worth a movie ticket. Wait till it's release on dvd/video.
