Set against the brutal chaos of World War II, a love story begins that will take two lovers through a living nightmare of captivity, across three continents and two decades. From the steamy jungles of Malaya to the dusty and desolate outback of Australia. Based on Nevil Shute’s international bestselling novel A TOWN LIKE ALICE follows the lives of Jean Paget (Helen Morse) and Joe Harman (Bryan Brown). Meeting in Malaya – she an attractive young English captive and he a cheerful Australian POW tortured for a simple act of kindness. Separated first by their captors, then by the distance of passing years, the two are finally reunited in the rugged outback of Australia – to face a challenge every bit as demanding as their wartime trials.
Also starring Gordon Jackson and Yuki Shimoda, the Emmy Award winning mini-series A Town Like Alice is finally available on DVD, and we are stoked to be able to offer you the chance to win it!
