“Assured. Hugo Weaving commands the screen.” Variety Magazine

“****Masterfully directed by Monahan…this is indeed an achievement.” Empire Magazine

From AFI winning director Craig Monahan (The Interview) comes this warm and tender portrayal of three intertwined love stories spanning two decades. Teenage Steph has never left the borders of her small orchard-river town, working at the local peach cannery and living with her over-protective adoptive mother Jude. Yet Steph’s eyes are opened when she receives her late mother Jass’ diary, which reveals the colourful and sexy past of those close to her. Through the diary, Steph starts to learn about the parents she never knew and makes discoveries that allow her to reinvent her vision of the world. Filmed entirely in the lush splendor of the South Australian Riverlands, Peaches is a powerfully emotional drama with compelling performances all-round.
