The Screen Guide

In 14’S GOOD, 18'S BETTER, Gillian Armstrong re-introduces audiences to Diana, Josie and Kerry - three 18-year-old women living in suburban Adelaide. The film is a sequel to SMOKES AND LOLLIES, which Armstrong made four years earlier when the girls were 14. In this film, their current lives and views are counterpointed by flashbacks to their lives and expectations when they were 14. The footage is intercut, juxtaposing the rough-edged, free-thinking young teens with their more constrained and scarred 18-year-old selves.
