Moving Australian coming-of-age drama as four boys from a convent orphanage (Daniel Radcliffe, Christian Byers, Lee Cormie and James Fraser) are sent on holiday to board with an elderly couple (Jack Thompson and Kris McQuade) by the seaside, where they learn that the childless couple nearby (Sullivan Stapleton and Victoria Hill) may adopt one of them, leading to rivalry among the friends. Besides sensitive performances and majestic cinematography, director Rod Hardy's adaptation of Michael Noonan's novel has a strong Catholic underpinning, including a bona fide miracle, and a compassionate humanistic viewpoint. An instance of crude language, mild profanity, dim upper female nudity, brief rear nudity, a clothed, nonexplicit sexual encounter, and brief underage drinking and smoking. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
