Plot

The story, based on the Madeleine St.John's bestseller, is set in the Australia of 1979, in full cultural awakening, breakdown of class structures and liberation of women. It is centered in Lisa, a young suburbian student who dreams with going to the University of Sydney and make a degree, something that her father don't seem to approve.

While she waits for the last exams' results, Lisa is chosen for a summer work in the Goode's department store in order to earn her first salary. There she will meet Fay, who is a little wary of inmigrants; Myra, who is seeking the attention of his husband again; and Magda, an Slovenian inmigrant who introduces Lisa to the rythym of the other European inmigrants.

The movie is directed by Bruce Beresford ('Driving Miss Daisy', 'A Good Man in Africa') and starred by Julia Ormond ('Witches of East End', 'The Music Never Stopped', 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent'), Angourie Rice ('Spider-Man: Far From Home', 'Walking with Dinosaurs 3D', 'Nowhere Boys: The Book of Shadows'), Rachael Taylor ('Finding Steve McQueen', 'Jessica Jones'), Alison McGirr ('Home and Away', 'Thirty'), Ryan Corr ('Hacksaw Ridge', 'A Few Less Men') and Vincent Perez ('At Eternity's Gate', 'D'après une histoire vraie'), among others.

Trivia

Looking back

Mr. Ryder, the concierge of Goodes Department Store, was Friedrich Von Trapp in 'The Sound of Music'.

Joining superheroes

The film's young star, Angourie Rice, portrays Betty in the Tom Holland Spider-Man movies.

The clock was ticking

The department store scenes were shot on the 7th floor of the David Jones building in the Sydney CBD. The 7th floor had remained disused for many years and still looked just as it did in 1959. The film crew only had one day to film these scenes as the next day renovations were due to begin on the building and the 7th floor would be inaccessible.
