Friday On My Mind

Matthew Saville Australia, 2017

Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film Friday on My Mind.

This is a great biopic about the seminal Aussie 60's rock band, The Easybeats. The Easybeats also spawned the greatest Australian songwriting team of all time: Harry Vanda and George Young. Christian Byers is impressive as Stevie Wright and even nails some of Wright's stage performances. This is a balanced, well written biopic which charts the band's rise and fall and the birth of the Vanda/Young partnership.
