Best mates Debbie (Nell Schofield) and Sue (Jad Capelja) with their new Emerald surfboard, about to stir up the boys on the beach in Bruce Beresford’s 1981 movie Puberty Blues 1981

We’re screening the 1981 movieĀ Puberty Blues this Saturday at the Museum of Sydney along with commentary from film archivist Jamie Leonarder, film critic and curator Paul Byrnes and surf blogger Rebecca Olive. Its a spot on, frankly told – and pretty uncomfortable – coming-of-age tale, set on the coast at Cronulla in the late 1970s. If you haven’t seen it in 30 years or even if you’re a ‘pubes’ fan and cultishly re-watch it regularly, this will be a great arvo of discussion and cringey nostalgia for a time many of us would rather forget.

With Jamie Leonarder, Paul Byrnes and Rebecca Olive
