"High Tide"

In this movie, directed by Gillian Anderson, a backup singer to an Elvis impersonator gets the sack while on the road in Australia. She ends up stuck in a small town, waiting for her car to be repaired. While staying in a caravan park, she runs into her daughter, whom she abandoned years before. The daughter is being raised by her grandmother, and has been told that her mother is dead. Some great performances, especially by Judy Davis who plays the deadbeat mom, and her young daughter, Claudia Karvan.
4 1/2 stars out of 5

I could't find a youtube trailer, but this one will work. You'll have to do a cut and past.


  1. Do you know where this film (not just the trailer) can be accessed on DVD, or online? I loved the film, but cannot find it now on DVD. Thanks!

  2. It's an Australian film so it'll be hard to find. There's a DVD available on Amazon but it's not a U.S. format.
