Thursday’s Child – 2009

Thursday’s Child is Tin, born on a Thursday and like the old nursery rhyme, has far to go. A strange and lonely child who digs, his wanderings take him underneath the earth into the subterranean tunnels that he is pre-destined to roam.

Thursday’s Child is the story of an Australian farming family’s strength as they battle their way through the Great Depression of the 1930’s, which explores the themes of memory, fate, family camaraderie and the spirit of determination in a time of great change.

The pace and the drama is absorbing and delightful in equal measures … it’s highly recommended.

Relentlessly energetic.
