Description - Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta
Looking for Alibrandi chronicles a year in the life of Josie Alibrandi, a third-generation Italian-Australian on the brink of adulthood. In her last year of school, Josie grapples with the awkwardness of first love, the grief of unexpected death and the uncovered secrets of her family history. It's a turbulent year for Josie as she seeks to find her place in the world.
Brimming with warmth, humour and vitality, Looking for Alibrandi pits the desire to be independent against the need to belong, in a story that will appeal to all ages.
The full screenplay and stills from the film are published here with an introduction by Anna Maria Dell'oso and an essay by Marchetta about adapting her award-winning novel for the screen.
