PO BOX 828 Moruya NSW 2537 President:firstname.lastname@example.org The Year My Voice Broke is a 1987 coming of age drama film written and directed by John Duigan and starring Noah Taylor, Loene Carmen, and Ben Mendelsohn. Set in 1962 in the rural Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, it was the first in a projected trilogy of films centred on the experiences of an awkward Australian boy, based on the childhood of writer/director John Duigan. The film itself is a series of interconnected segments narrated by Danny who recollects how he and Freya grew apart over the course of one year. Although the trilogy never came to fruition, it was followed by a 1991 sequel, Flirting. The film was the recipient of the 1987 Australian Film Institute Award for Best Film, a prize which Flirting also won in 1990. The film was shot, but not set, in Braidwood, New South Wales, Australia. It had several working titles, including Reflections of a Golden Childhood and Museum of Desire. The hotel exterior is the Braidwood Hotel (which back then was called the Commercial Hotel), while its interior is next door, the Royal Mail Hotel. The Royal Cafe, 106 Wallace Street, is also featured.
