The Sunnyboy (2013)- MIFF Film Review


Australia  90 mins

Jeremy Oxley was the frontman of The Sunnyboys, an awesome pub rock band of the early 80s that had some success in the Australian charts and then disappeared. What many didn’t know was that Oxley was living with schizophrenia and gradually became more focused on his artwork.

The documentary covers Oxley’s life from early childhood through falling in love with his beautiful and supportive wife Mary and his relationship with her two young sons and ends with a reunion of the band.

The Sunnyboy screens at the Forum Theatre on Friday, August 9 at 6:30pm and at ACMI on Sunday, August 11 at 4pm. To book tickets, visit
