THE BLACK BALLOON

When Thomas (Rhys Wakefield) and his family move to a new home and he has to start at a new school, all he wants is to fit in. When his pregnant mother (Toni Collette) has to take things easy, his father Simon (Erik Thomson) puts him in charge of his autistic older brother Charlie (Luke Ford).

Thomas, with the help of his new girlfriend Jackie (Gemma Ward), faces his biggest challenge yet. Charlie's unusual antics take Thomas on an emotional journey that causes his pent-up frustrations about his brother to pour out - in a story that is funny, confronting, and ultimately heart-warming. The Black Balloon is a story about fitting in, discovering love and accepting your family.

Representing a major directorial debut for Australian filmmaker Elissa Down, THE BLACK BALLOON stars Toni Collette, Rhys Wakefield and Gemma Ward. A NeoClassics Film Release, it opens commercially in San Diego on March 13th at Landmark Theatres.

Rated PG-13 for some sexual content, a scene of violence, and brief strong language. Running time: 97 minutes
