After the death of his father, gifted young sportsman Tony Hobbs (Jared Daperis) is thrust into the role of caring and providing for his family. But he yearns for a life bigger and brighter than the one in which his ties currently bind him. While his grief-stricken mother (Jodie Rimmer) works nights at a call centre, Tony strives to keep his eye on the ball and his sights set on a brilliant future. With the help of an inspirational coach (Shane Connor) he undertakes a courageous and challenging journey fraught with adversity in a heart-wrenching effort to pull his family through to better times.
A coming of age story that explores the delicate and tender relationship between mother and son, PLAYING FOR CHARLIE is a powerful exploration of family spirit and hope, considered “one of the most impressive and promising local feature debuts we have seen in a decade.” – THE AGE
