||"The Oxford Companion to Australian Film is an indispensable reference for anyone interested in Australian movies. This Companion is a guide to the people and ideas that have made Australian cinema. It contains more than a thousand entries and was written by almost a hundred scholars and writers with expertise in different facets of Australian cinema." "Since the rise of cinema a century ago, Australian artists and audiences have embraced the movies with relish. Some of the earliest films were made in Australia. The recent successes of such films as Shine and Head On and of such actors as Nicole Kidman, Kate Blanchett, and Geoffrey Rush attest to the enduring energy of, and international interest in, Australian film. This Companion celebrates Australia's love of the movies and provides a comprehensive and entertaining account of its unique contribution to the art form."--BOOK JACKET.
