Synopsis: The only Australian film of the year to recieve Offical Competition selection at both the 2015 Venice and Toronto International Film Festivals, Looking For Grace is an intimate, funny and profoundly moving story about the complexities of family life.
When rebellious 16-year-old Grace takes off, her exasperated mum and dad enlist the help of a close-to-retirement detective, and begin the long drive from Perth out to the West Australian wehatbelt to try to find her. On the journey, the two must confront the realities of their changing relationship to one another, and to their daughter.
Wry, intriguing and poignant, Brooks' unflinching reflection on the disruptive effects of both adolescence and middle-age boasts her trademark sense of character, acerbic humour and eye for the hypnotic rhythms of Australia's regional landscapes. Innovatively structed to incrementally reveal each character's journey - and secrets - from numerous vantage points, and bodly shifting tones for each tale, Looking For Grace is a beautiful and unmistkably Australian story that reminds that life is precious, and can change in the blink of an eye.
