Review

A frail schoolgirl obsessed with Barbra Streisand has trouble turning male heads. Her idea of chat-up involves bopping a boy over the head with her breathalyser. But this is no ordinary schoolgirl; it’s a teenage Jane Horrocks (played by Sophie Wright). In this magical micro-comedy the 70s are lovingly re-created (with help from Leo Sayer and Middle of the Road) and there’s a joyous twist in the tale.

Summary

A 13-year-old Barbra Streisand-obsessed Jane gets a perm against the advice of her hairdresser and all does not go according to plan. Series of autobiographical comedy shorts written by and starring some of the nation's best loved performers.
