    One of the most vital, energetic, honest and uncompromising of Australian films. David Stratton.Suburban Australia in the late 70s.It was the era of the drive-in movie, the Chico Roll girl and the beloved FJ.Evocative of both the period and location, THE FJ HOLDEN chronicles the misadventures of Kevin and Bob, a couple of teenage rev-heads on their way to becoming adults. By day they work in a wrecking yard, by night they cruise around in the ultimate chick-magnet a yellow FJ.
    Boasting alcohol-fuelled escapades, back seat sex, illegal drag racing, a classic Oz rock soundtrack (featuring Ol' 55, Skyhooks and Renee Geyer) and the screen debut of future star Sigrid Thornton, THE FJ HOLDEN forged a strong connection with 70s mainstream male and female audiences and today remains a classic true-to-life tale of Aussie teens surviving in the suburban sprawl.
