Two moments of Jonas's life intertwine, each reflecting the other: in 1995, when he was a secretive teenager, and 18 years later, as an attractive and impulsive thirty-something looking for balance in his life.

In 1978, when the push to decriminalise homosexuality has stalled, a group of activists decide they must make one final attempt to celebrate who they are. Led by former union boss, Lance Gowland, they get a police permit and spread the word. On a freezing winter's night, they cloak themselves in fancy dress, join hands, and parade down oxford street. But they have no idea that angry police lie in wait, and the courage they find that night will finally mobilise the nation.Written by

An interesting history. Good actors, all of them, a so-so ok script with some clunky dialogue.
The script would have worked fine if the director was up to the challenge, however this well-meant tv movie falls down flat.
I don't understand why Australian tv-show/movie directors approach their show like they're a film student being given an episode of Home and Away to direct.
No imagination, no sensitivity to the subject or the medium of film.
And the by-the-numbers daytime soap musical interjections were toe-curling.
The end montage of actors with the actual person was moving. More could have been made of this.
In all, it's an ok movie, the sense of community is well created and the actors and subject make it worth a watch.
One day maybe a good movie will be made of the history of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
