An Australian classic that has been revitalised for a new generation, STORM BOY presents a new vision of Colin Thiele's beloved novel of a young boy and his pelican.
Michael Kingley begins to tell his granddaughter a story from his childhood, of when he discovered, rescued and raised an orphaned pelican who grew into an extraordinary bird called Mr Percival. Conjuring up long-forgotten memories of growing up by the coast with his father, the profound experience of remembering Mr Percival and telling his story affects Michael like never before.
Directed by Shawn Seet and with an impressive cast including Jai Courtney and David Gulpilil, STORM BOY promises to be a landmark in Australian family cinema.
