Miklós (Miles Szanto) is at the age when everything feels high-stakes. He is coming to terms with his own sexuality, and when his best friend Dan (Daniel Webber) reveals that he has a new girlfriend, this puts an end to their plans to run away together. He is torn between loyalty to his migrant family and his own desires, and his world is soon rocked by the death of his brother Tommy, that he feels partly responsible for. Teenage Kicks beautifully captures this whirlwind period in Miklós’ life, dealing with themes of guilt, friendship, cultural and familial loyalty, and burgeoning sexuality. Craig Boreham’s unique voice is an exciting addition to Australian queer cinema. Official Selection: Mardi Gras Film Festival, MiFo LGBT Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival
