Summer Coda ( visu )

In the vein of Bertolucci's Stealing Beauty, Richard Gray's SUMMER CODA is an Australian film with a decidedly unique setting - the stunning orange groves of sun-baked Mildura against the majestic backdrop of the Murray River. Rachael Taylor (Bottle Shock, Cedar Boys) and Alex Dimitriades (Head On) star in the romantic drama, supported by a strong ensemble cast including Susie Porter, Angus Sampson, Nathan Phillips, Cassandra Magrath and Jacki Weaver. Having grown up with her mother in Nevada, Heidi hasn't spoken to her father since she was seven. Now a young woman, haunted by his memory, she returns to Australia seeking closure. Travelling to her hometown, Heidi is forced to busk for cash and her melancholic violin score catches the attention of handsome orange picker Michael, who offers Heidi a ride. Both are initially guarded, but an unexpected connection soon blossoms. Fleeing to Michael's orange grove after a family reunion turns sour, Heidi finds the escape and camaraderie she desperately needs. Whilst Michael seems conflicted over Heidi's presence, it's picking season and he is soon immersed in the colourful surrounds and offbeat characters of the arriving citrus pickers. However, when Heidi drops her guard and allows her feelings to flourish, Michael struggles to reciprocate, his wit and charm masking a tortured soul. As the past unravels, Michael and Heidi are forced to confront the future, discovering that their lives and secrets are better shared

The principal ( visu )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"Matt Bashir, former Deputy Principal at a prestigious girls' school, is the new Principal at Boxdale Boys High. His appointment - his first as principal - seriously ruffles the feathers of Ursula Bright, his deputy, who had been gunning for the top job. She's not the only one he puts offside. His radical reforms are met with cynicism by a burnt-out staff. He doesn't fare much better with the students, who predict he won't last a week. Bashir makes both allies and enemies among the staff and works overtime to get the local community on side. Gradually, he earns the respect of the school police liaison officer, Kellie (30) especially as he takes on the notorious Ahmad brothers, devoting much attention to the younger - volatile Tarek - with whom he feels a connection. But just as it seems like he's making some progress a student is found dead on school grounds. The murder and subsequent police investigation (led by Detective Bilic) threaten Bashir's fledgling reforms, his support from staff and even his resolve. But he's determined to do his best for the boys of Boxdale despite his fear that students will take matters into their own hands. The murder investigation shifts from students, gang members, local shopkeepers, parents and the teaching staff. All the while principal Basheer is trying to implement positive reform while facing opposition at every turn." -- Jbhifi.com.au
