When Aussie expatriate Tom Garfield (John Waters in an AFI Award–winning performance) walks away from a lucrative Hollywood writing assignment, he heads home to Melbourne to explore the scattered fragments of his past. Seizing the opportunity, local theatre producer Geoff Bormann (Kevin Miles) welcomes his return with open arms, angling for Tom to promote his latest play 'The Human Heart' and truly celebrate the return of the prodigal son. But Tom has other ideas and sets out on a rocky road to redemption. A recovering alcoholic, Tom begs his ex-wife Helen (Penelope Stewart) for a second chance after nearly a decade's absence and attempts to reinstate himself in the life of their confused young daughter Jessie (Jacinta Stapleton).
Buoyed by the support of struggling writer and long-lost friend Ian McKenzie (Kim Gyngell in an AFI Award–winning performance) and the newfound attention of actress Suzy Daniels (Nicki Paull), Tom's attempts to reconcile his past are a journey fraught with the heartache of success, the passion of conviction and the underlying sense of self. By letting through his own sensitivities, screenwriter Frank Howson bravely shows us our own in this internationally acclaimed film.
Presented in a brand new widescreen transfer, Boulevard of Broken Dreams is backed up by an Aria Award–nominated soundtrack, including songs from Marc Jordan, Tom Waits, Buddy Holly, Beeb Birtles, Renee Geyer, Stephen Cummings, Vanetta Fields and Dan Hill.
