THE BLACK BALLOON is an AFI award winning, drama-based, Australian feature film which stars Toni Collette, Rhys Wakefield, etc. The plot is as follows: 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 it easy, he is put 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! Download the drama to watch this strong film!

Supreme acting17 November 2011

Aussie films are compelling, natural and heart-warming. Toni Collette is at her best, and backed up by strong performance from all the main cast. Tough story line done with compassion and love - you become part of the family. Definitely worth a viewing.

Honest! Topic needs this kind of exposure02 March 2011

I am a big fan of Toni Collette so decided to watch this film. I was interested to see Rhys play a central character. The quality of directing took my breath away and I congratulate anyone involved in the production.
