The Big Steal
Dir. Nadia Tass
1990, 99 mins. 35mm
With Ben Mendelsohn, Claudia Karvan, Steve Bisley, Damon Herriman
Teenager Danny (a baby-faced Mendelsohn, in an early role) wants to woo his crush Joanna, promising a ride in his 1973 Jaguar. Except that he doesn’t have one. Unwanted and unintended consequences ensue when he decides to trade in his dowdy 1962 Nissan via a sketchy car dealer. This warm-hearted teen comedy caper was the third feature for filmmaking couple Nadia Tass (director) and David Parker (writer and cinematographer). A car-lover’s delight, it invigorates the 1980s teen date-comedy formula with an Aussie sensibility, showcasing the streets of inner-city Melbourne and a sunny Oz-rock soundtrack.
Please pick up tickets at the Museum’s admissions desk upon arrival. All seating is general admission. Review safety protocols before your visit.
