“Storm Boy” features an award-winning ensemble cast, including Geoffrey Rush, Jai Courtney, Finn Little, Trevor Jamison, Morgana Davies and Erik Thomson.

“Storm Boy” is a beautiful and contemporary retelling of Colin Thiele's classic Australian tale.  Thiele’s novella, which tells the story of a young boy and his extraordinary friendship with an orphaned pelican on South Australia’s remote Coorong National Park, has enchanted and moved Australians for over half a century.

'Storm Boy' has grown up to be Michael Kingley (Geoffrey Rush), a successful retired businessman and grandfather.

When Kingley starts to see images from his past that he can't explain, he is forced to remember his long-forgotten childhood, growing up on an isolated coastline with his father. He recounts to his grand-daughter the story of how, as a boy, he rescued and raised an extraordinary orphaned pelican, Mr Percival. Their remarkable adventures and very special bond has a profound effect on all their lives.

Based on the beloved book, “Storm Boy” is a timeless story of an unusual and unconditional friendship.
