1998, Cascade Films, 104 min, Australia, Dir: Nadia Tass

Traumatized by the death of her rock star father, 8-year-old Amy (a remarkable Alana De Roma) has become mute. When her mother (Rachel Griffiths) brings her to Melbourne in search of treatment, they move in with some quirky locals, one of whom (Ben Mendelsohn) tries to use music to bring the little girl out of her world of silence. A touching mix of comedy, drama and song, AMY won nearly 30 international awards, including the Grand Prix Cannes Junior at the Cannes Film Festival.
