Australian Marriage Act

Photo Stock image

Based on a fascinating true story, Australian Marriage Act is a frank, humorous and moving account of a young couple’s fight for love. Under the Australian Marriage Act, 17 year-old Victoria is forced to seek the court’s permission to marry her 22 year-old fiancé before she turns 18. Australian Marriage Act speaks directly to young audiences about sexual relationships and the age of consent, personal identity, discrimination, privacy and the law.
