Seventeen-year-old Timothy (Dean O'Gorman, from the remake of Goodbye Pork Pie) is facing suspension after a misguided prank. His parents hope the French-Canadian exchange student they’re hosting will settle Tim down, but when ‘Michel’ turns out to be ‘Michelle’ — and spunky — plans go awry. Romance and cross-cultural comedy ensues as Tim tries to court his Montreal mademoiselle. Shot around Avondale College, the award-winning Kiwi-Canadian film got a special mention from the Children’s Jury at the 1996 Berlin Film Festival. The cast includes Angela Bloomfield and future Pluto singer Milan Borich.
She has legs for Africa and a body of an Amazonian princess. Oh and that face ... how could you describe it? Sort of Julia Roberts meets Winona Ryder...meets God.– Nathan (Milan Borich) describes Tim’s new house guest
