Texts in the City: Paradise Road

Texts in the City: Paradise Road

No matter how compelling a novel or a film might be, if you have to study it, there’s always the risk you’ll end up hating it. Not any more! A gift to VCE students, their teachers (and of course life-long learners) Texts in the City is a weekly exploration of the classic texts – both old and new – that appear on the VCE English reading lists. In this episode, Andrew McDonald is joined by film critic and broadcaster Thomas Caldwell. They discuss Bruce Beresford’s film Paradise Road.
