BMX Bandits

Tarantino called it the Australian Goonies and this film has a whooshing, burnt bitumen on-the-ground immediacy ” Luke Buckmaster The Guardian

Celebrating its 40th Anniversary, BMX bandits is an ode to the Aussie suburban street adventure and epitome of 80’s cinema extravagance.

Teenagers PJ (Angelo D’Angelo) and Goose (James Lugton) get their thrills on BMX bikes, performing hair-raising tricks across Sydney. Along with their new friend Judy (Nicole Kidman!!), they discover a box of illegal walkie-talkies (how quaint!!) and uncover a plot by a criminal gang to monitor police signals during a bank heist. Setting PJ, Goose and Judy on a collision with danger, only their BMX skills can save them!
