Newsfront ()

directed by
featuring Bill Hunter, Wendy Hughes, Gerard Kennedy, Chris Haywood, John Ewart, Angela Punch, Don Crosby, Bryan Brown, John Clayton, Lorna Lesley, John Dease

Set between the years 1949 and 1956, Newsfront tracks the destinies of two brothers, their adventures and misadventures placed in the context of sweeping social and political changes in their native Australia. Both of the protagonists are newsreel photographers. Frank (Gerard Maguire) is constitutionally resistant to change, while Len (Bill Kennedy) welcomes any alterations in his own life and in the world around him. The film fluctuates between black and white and color, between actual news footage and reconstructed events. Newsfront is what The Way We Were might have looked like on a tiny budget with a cast of unknowns. The film represented a laudable feature-film directorial debut for one-time documentary filmmaker Philip Noyce. Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis
