e all have those sliding-door moments W – those micro decisions and random encounters that profoundly change the course of our lives – or even history. For me it was a last-minute change of heart to attend a friend-of-a-friend’s barbecue where I met my husband. For Gillian Armstrong, Australia’s first lady of film, it was a word of advice from a virtual stranger, a female TV editor who warned that if she accepted a job as a script assistant, she’d likely never leave the script department. The aspiring young director heeded the advice, went to film school and the rest is history. I wonder if that TV editor ever recalled the encounter and realised that, if not for her, we might never have had such cinematic gems as My Brilliant Career, Mrs Soffel and the new biopic on Hollywood costume powerhouse Orry-Kelly, Women He’s Undressed. Read more about the director’s brilliant career, and her fight against the boys’ club mentality, in this week’s cover story.

Stupid and foolhardy though it might be, it’s in my nature to step in. And living in a part of town that’s still quite gritty and full of interesting characters, that can lead to strange encounters. It comes with the territory. My tram line, for example, has to be the most dysfunctional in Melbourne: there’s a scene straight out of Cop Shop on board almost every time I travel. One time, a clearly very troubled young woman had got herself involved in a slanging match with some guy. He beat a hasty retreat – she was pretty formidable, even while you could see pain etched on her face – but she wouldn’t let up. The situation was heading towards explosion. I went to her and asked if I could buy her a coffee and urged her off the tram at the next stop. We sat and chatted for an hour or so at a cafÊ and I got some insight into the difficulties of her life, and her particular challenges in perceiving the world around her. I know I solved no particular problem for her, but maybe she felt that there was someone on that tram who didn’t think she was a complete nut – and sometimes I feel that’s all I can do. I’ve stood at intersections in my suburb and reached out and grabbed elderly residents back as they were about to blithely step into the path of yet another construction vehicle (it’s going to be a great place to live when they finally stop building it), and I’ve steered blokes

with their brains on fire in the direction of the hostel down the road. Now, none of this is meant to present me as a saint: actually I’m just a bossy busybody who can’t help but stick her nose in what’s going on around me. But I also know that the clichĂŠ of “slipping through the cracksâ€? is actually a reality in my neck of the woods, with the disenfranchised just managing to find a toehold in this part of Melbourne. So I step in. For good or ill. As to the bloke in my car, I don’t know what his real story is. He certainly had gathered up all he could find in the vehicle, and it seemed to me he had planned to carry it off. Was he really homeless? My mate Tony Keenan, of the homelessness organisation Launch Housing, always tells me that the best thing you can do is call the police: they are someone’s best chance of getting safe accommodation for the night. The coppers seemed to be treating him right. I hope he’s OK. â—? Virginia Trioli is co-host of ABC News Breakfast on ABC1 and ABC News 24, 6-9am weekdays

ell of course, on reflection, I should have gone back inside, locked the door and called the police. Just ask my husband: he’s furious at me. Ever since revealing an early-morning encounter with a would-be car thief [Virginia found a man rummaging in her car, scolded him and ordered him to stand on the kerb and wait while she called the police – which he obligingly did] I’ve been inundated with mostly kindly, sometimes quite horrified, scolding about not taking on strangers engaged in nefarious activities, no matter how angry or in a hurry one might be. Funny thing, the fight or flight instinct, the rapid engagement of the locus coeruleus and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis ‌ ahem. As if anybody could be in control of that. The physical and mental stress response is unavoidable (unless you’re a fighter pilot or a brain surgeon) but the way you go about dealing with that response is down to your nature and personality, which are of course creations of a thousand different things. Me, I lead with my jaw. A glass jaw, sometimes.

HARI RAJ meets Gillian Armstrong

her brilliant career First lady: Director Gillian Armstrong at the Astor Theatre. (MICHAEL RAYNE A AYNE R)

I

t’s been more than four decades since Gillian Armstrong applied for work at the ABC, but she vividly recalls the interaction. Perched on a couch at the stately Astor Theatre, wearing a half-smile that flits between playful and sardonic, one of Australia’s pioneering film directors leans forward to tell the story. “Back then, there were only two job options in Melbourne – you worked for Crawford [Productions] or you worked for ABC drama. The ABC wrote back to me and said, ‘We don’t interview women in camera, sound, staging or editing – please send in your typing speeds’,” Gillian says, eyes alight at the impending punchline.

10 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ AUGUST 19, 2015

“I never went back there, ha! And guess what, I never learnt to type.” We’re all the richer for that inability. Gillian has built a brilliant career telling intimate stories on sprawling canvases, or vice versa. Her characters are as rich and as witty and as fascinated by the chiaroscuro of gender roles as she is. After rocketing to international fame with 1979’s My Brilliant Career Career, the director’s own career has straddled the Pacific Ocean. Her 1994 adaptation of Little Women garnered three Academy Awards and rapturous notices; 21 years later she’s still drawing plaudits, this

time for her latest film, Women He’s Undressed, a look at the life of Oscar-winning Australian costume designer Orry-Kelly. In person, Gillian’s speech is a warm and wonderfully inconsistent thing, capable of rambling in reminiscence before darting in with the speed of a snakebite to make a point. But there is no venom, just an outrage no less sharp for its calluses. Quite simply, when it comes to gender disparity behind the camera, Armstrong has had enough. “I cannot believe that I was being interviewed 40 years ago about how rare it was to be a female director,” she


says. “Things should have changed by now. That is why I’m speaking up. It’s appalling – it should be an equal ball game and it’s plainly not. There are just as many young women coming out of film school, just as many women winning short film awards, and they’re not out there directing.” She has a point. A recent report by Monica Davidson, a researcher at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, found that although the number of directing students at the school is split evenly between genders, only 15 per cent of Australian feature films are made by women. Little wonder Gillian is calling for affirmative action to boost the number of female creatives in the industry. She explains that when she was a “young and snobby” filmmaker with a slew of awards to her name, she thought that talent should be the only denominator of success – but she’s changed her tack after too many years of seeing too many women miss out on the lucrative, vital training provided by the advertising industry. “I see young women who win awards and nothing happens, but the young guy who did the jokey film – not the most amazing film, but the funny fart-joke film – he gets invited to meet the advertising people. Why? Because I think 90 per cent of the creatives in advertising are blokey males, and they’re getting more blokey males in to direct ads,” she says.

“It’s appalling – it should be an equal ball game and it’s plainly not” She concedes that television is one of the few areas where women are shining, and name-checks the likes of Aussie productions Offspring and Tangle, as well as Homeland, Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones in the US as proving grounds for female directors. But she bemoans the male-driven focus of modern cinema. “There is a blinkered fallacy that teenage boys are the greatest cinemagoers and make the most money for films. I remember talking to Meryl Streep about this when she was publicising Mamma Mia!, and she said, ‘I’m doing this around the world because I want people to know that women’s films can be commercial’.”

G

illian Armstrong was born in Melbourne in 1950. She attended Vermont High, now Vermont Secondary College, and was exposed to photography via her father, a real-estate agent by trade but a keen amateur shutterbug. Her mother was a primary school teacher, and later a homemaker, and Gillian has often recollected her parents’ support for their children’s dreams, something relatively uncommon for women growing up in the ’60s and ’70s. Still, she says, a life behind the camera wasn’t something she dreamed of as a child. “You have to realise that when I grew up in Melbourne, there was no Australian film industry at all. I always loved theatre and design, and I thought maybe I’ll do something behind the scenes, in costume or sets,” she says. She enrolled to study costume and set design at Swinburne University but hit a wall in her final year. “I realised I only had about six ideas.” So she channelled her frustration into writing and making short films. The bug had bitten. “I realised that everything I was interested in had come together,” she says. “I always liked literature and storytelling, I loved design and art, and I loved actors and photography. Film was a way to do them all.” The young Gillian won what she modestly describes as “a couple of awards” for these early films, but work was hard to come by. She worked on Fred Schepisi’s first film, as a tea girl; then came that fateful correspondence with the ABC. “All the boys got interviews,” she recalls. “So I went

the director’s cut “I don’t have five favourite films,” says Gillian. “I have 30 of them!” In the interests of economy, however, here are five:

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

T Take your children to see this, as my dad did with us, and they will learn (as we did) a lifelong lesson about racism and tolerance. They’ll also fall in love with Gregory Peck and little Scout as I did at age 10. It’s important that our heroes have moral compasses.

SOME LIKE IT HOT

Orry-Kelly designed both Marilyn’s unforgettable, out-there, sexy-but-innocent frocks – and also Jack Lemmon’s and Tony T Curtis’s frocks! Y Yes, they had to pass themselves off as believable, if plain, women in the story. It is also laugh-out-loud funny and charming.

THE PIANO

Jane Campion’s extraordinary second feature with Holly Hunter and Sam Neill cast to play against type. Jane won the Academy Award for best screenplay, and it’s the film that proves women are equal if not better as film directors. There were also great costumes from our own Janet Patterson, who was nominated for Best Costume that year.

THE GODFATHER PART II

I liked the first one as well but Al Pacino was amazing in this and so was the wonderful Diane Keaton. They have a truly disturbing scene in the kitchen. Life message: don’t marry into the Mafia. Every crime story has been influenced by this powerful film.

CASABLANCA

Orry-Kelly designed the elegant and timeless costumes. I had already seen it three times before working on Women He’s Undressed Undressed. Y You fall in love with Ingrid Bergman, Humphrey Bogart and the music. In his memoir, Orry-Kelly wrote about ‘standing on the side of the set adjusting Ingrid’s costume, and the pianist was playing As Time Goes By By. And she said, ‘What a beautiful tune …’ Of course it became a classic.

off to Sydney, Fred gave me the number of someone who was directing (TV series) Spyforce, with Jack Thompson, and I went there for an interview to be script assistant – then I mentioned that I had made a short film. “Nobody had made a short film then, and there were no film schools in Sydney, so they said come back. They had a little screening and invited all the editors, and one of them – I think it was a woman – said, ‘You’ve got creative talent, don’t be a script assistant, you’ll never get out of it’.” In 1973, the country’s first film school was founded. The Australian Film and Television School’s first intake was just

12 students, and included the likes of Phillip Noyce and Chris Noonan – and Gillian Armstrong. Five years later, it was lost on no one that the title of My Brilliant Career could be seen as portentous commentary for the young director’s prospects. Upon the film’s release, The Washington Post dubbed Gillian “the most sensitive and accomplished woman director in the English-speaking world”. Inundated with offers from Hollywood, however, she chose to stay in Australia and do Starstruck (1982), starring Jo Kennedy. “At that time we weren’t expecting to ever work over there … I think Bruce Beresford and Fred (Schepisi) and Peter (Weir) might have just started meeting with Hollywood studios,” she says. “I knew that I had a lot to learn; I wasn’t going to rush over there. I just wanted to make good films, and I was very happy to make them in Australia – but when I was publicising Starstruck I was approached by [producer] Scott Rudin about Mrs Soffel. It was the story that got me – it didn’t matter that I was going to be making a Hollywood film. The key thing was the story.” It wasn’t all bright lights and big bucks, though. Gillian soon realised that larger budgets produce correspondingly larger headaches. “Let me tell every young filmmaker – you may think you’re going to have more money to make films over there, you’re going to get paid more too, but you dance with the devil,” she says, grinning at the ghosts of injustices past. “It was very, very hard; there is so much interference. It’s much harder to retain creative control. It’s an artistic battle.”

T

hat’s a fight she won with Women He’s Undressed. She cast Darren Gilshenan as Orry-Kelly himself, who speaks to the camera in languid, dreamlike interludes – an unusual choice that ends up working a treat. The film was the end result of two years of detective work, tracking down snippets of interviews with older actors and unpublished manuscripts. Orry-Kelly, the professional name of Orry George Kelly, was at the centre of old Hollywood. He was involved with Cary Grant, and it is bittersweet watching their relationship grow and founder. It’s also astonishing that the man and his life had been forgotten for years. “I’d never heard of Orry-Kelly, I’m ashamed to say, seeing as how I work in the film business. I was quite shocked to find out the amazing films he had designed,” Gillian says, checking them off on her fingers – Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, 42nd Street. His accolades include close to 300 film credits, and three Oscar awards. Gillian has had costume designers on her films nominated for Oscars, and understands the importance of the clothes a character wears. “The costume helps the actor create their character.” It was an invitation to a film festival panel in Newcastle that led Gillian to a fortuitous discovery – the manuscript of Orry-Kelly’s unpublished memoir, which had been stashed in a pillowcase in a cupboard for decades. She helped get Orry-Kelly’s family a book deal – it was published on August 1. And if she were to write a memoir, how would she look back on her brilliant career? “I can look back and feel very satisfied and very privileged that I had made films that have touched people, and affected them. People all over the world have come up to me and told me about looking for their birth mother after watching High Tide, or that My Brilliant Career made them pursue their dream of becoming a writer. That’s incredibly moving.” She pauses, looks up, unleashes a dazzling grin. “I can die happy.” ● hraj@theweeklyreview.com.au » Women He’s Undressed is in cinemas and on bookshelves now. » ACMI will also celebrate Orry-Kelly’s work with an extensive exhibition, Orry-Kelly: Dressing Hollywood, which opens on August 18.

Connie is the one who told me I needed to upgrade my cheap chemist-shop hair straightener to the real deal. You’re worth it, she said, you won’t regret it, she enthused, and until it burnt my hair I didn’t. That straightener managed to turn really wiry days into something somewhere near manageable. Connie rang the manufacturer and arranged a replacement, free of charge. I told her I thought the kids may or may not be at fault here and she said, “Oh my god, kids, don’t let them near your straightener. I went into my girls’ bathroom once and found mine in the sink, plugged in and turned on”. And Bonnie and Lauren said, ‘Yeah right, as if mum’.

ast week, in possibly one of the most frightening moments I’ve ever experienced in a bathroom, my hair straightener burst into flames and cooked my hair. The appliance and my hair smoked up a storm. As a result, I now have a fuzzball fringe and hair-straightener withdrawal, because hair straighteners are the crack-cocaine of hair-doing. Once you start using them, you really cannot stop. The kids deny any involvement. No, mum, they are saying, we didn’t put it anywhere near the water and we didn’t try to straighten Barbie’s hair with an electrical appliance and conditioner at the same time. Until I replace this, the Rolls Royce of hair straighteners, they and Barbie will have to go without and I will have to live with fluffy hair that looks a bit like a bad ’80s perm growing out but a little bit uglier. A lot uglier, if I’m honest. It is neither lush nor luxurious, and not any of the things hair is meant to be. Is not having a hair straightener the worst thing that can happen? Of course not, but

I’ve had a pretty ordinary week so having an inanimate object to channel all my discontent into is useful. It’s a fact that, if your hair is not right, your day is going to be crap so best to blame everything on a faulty appliance than the universe or the people you live with. Anyway, I took the straightener in to see Connie the hairdresser, who sold it to me in the first place. Connie runs a salon with her two daughters (one is named Bonnie, so they are Connie and Bonnie but the other daughter

is something like Lauren, which I’ve always felt is a missed opportunity). They all have immaculate, extremely straight hair. When I go there I feel like one of the family because they talk to each other like they are all around the kitchen bench. It’s all, “Mum, get me the comb”, and, “Make us a cuppa, love”. They all pitch in, so sometimes I think no one would bat an eyelid if I got up and helped out with the sweeping or got out the wax and whipped off someone’s moustache.

Just a few days until the new one arrives and I’ll actually be able to leave the house without a hat. Exciting times ahead. ● khall@theweeklyreview.com.au

Local Duncan Thomson – who named it after a grandfather – waited years for the right location and hit pay dirt with this corner site at the clocktower roundabout. THE DÉCOR COR \ Dark timbers, mood lighting, antique brass, banquette seating, large mirrors and artisan wine on display lend European/inner-Melbourne sophistication; big picture windows framing sea and sky (and Beach Road cyclists in perpetual motion) make it iconic Bayside.

And it’s hard not to squeal with delight when an Oak Valley pine cone is set alight so we can toast house-made Daintree chocolate marshmallows over it.

Cellar Notes WINE DIAMONDS

Tartaric acid \ Tartaric acid is susceptible to temperature fluctuations. It solidifies at cold temperatures, forming those crystals. It helps to stabilise wine and maintain its colour – less important in wines that will be drunk within a year or two of release. Wineries can remove tartrates by chilling the wine to just above freezing point. Crystals form, drop to the bottom of the tank and are easily removed. Malic acid \ If you’ve ever noticed a crunchy green apple flavour in chardonnay or riesling, that’s malic acid. It is found in nearly all fruits and berries. Malic acid levels drop out of grapes

his week I want to talk about wine diamonds. They’re the little crystals that sometimes form on the bottom of a cork. There’s nothing wrong with them. In fact, they’re the sign of a good wine. They’re just deposits of tartaric acid, one of three acids found naturally in wine that play a role in flavour and aroma.

as they ripen, more quickly in warmer regions. Winemakers often have to add acid to their wines to maintain balance. The amount of malic acid in a wine can be reduced by a process called malolactic fermentation. The buttery smell sometimes found in chardonnay is a sign that the wine has undergone malolactic fermentation. Citric acid \ Wine contains small

views are of Oak Valley, the owner’s property in the Strathbogie Ranges, where Angus cattle and dorper ewes graze on more than 810 hectares of pasture and bushland. Produce from this idyllic property is used widely in the dishes created by Highline’s young chef Simon Tarlington (ex Quay, Sydney), she says, and the staff often visit the farm to see and taste for themselves. She’s just as enthusiastic as she delivers an exquisite little amuse-bouche to our table - a delicately trimmed and hollowed eggshell holding an intensely bacony broth. She recites the components with great aplomb, then coyly admits to practising at home. We’re seduced, and we haven’t even started our meal. Highline opened late last year in a former function space upstairs at Windsor’s Railway Hotel, which boasts Melbourne’s only 24-hour bottle shop and has been owned by the Sullivan family for more than 30 years. Seating just 28, the dining room is lined with lovely timbers, heavy fabrics and vases filled with native flowers. There’s three dining options to choose from: a four-course à la carte menu, a five-course chef’s menu and an eight-course prestige menu.

An album will be released in October, but in the meantime Chris is orbiting

He says this opportunity to inspire is a responsibility that comes with being an astronaut. “I was trusted to do something extremely difficult and dangerous, but at the same time it’s a huge privilege to be able to leave Earth and live on a space station,” he says. “I shouldn’t just keep it to myself.” It was footage of the Apollo missions that inspired him, as a 10-year-old, to

reach for the stars. (“It was a realisation that impossible things actually do come true.”) He’s grateful for new technological developments that make it easier to share the reality of living in space. But the lessons he’ll be sharing aren’t merely intended to inspire future astronauts. “The life of an astronaut is just like the rest of life, but exaggerated,” Chris says. “The consequence of making a small mistake is death, so how do you deal with

Sister Noon by Karen Joy Fowler (Profile Books) www.allenandunwin.com

Bewitching and occasionally baffling, this tale of lies and legendary women evokes the richly drawn world of Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay Clay. Lizzie Hayes is a dull woman who has learnt to keep her romantic notions quiet. Mrs Pleasant – or Madame Christophe or Ellen Smith, depending on whom you ask – is anything but quiet. A lush and surprising read. ONLINE \ Interview with Karen Joy Fowler ●

The Basics \ The Age of Entitlement (The Three Basics) www.thebasics.com.au

Anger never sounded this much fun. The first LP in six years from the Melbourne trio (Kris Schroeder, Tim Heath and Gotye’s Wally De Backer) rages against our nation’s politicians, news media and general apathy. Time Poor and Whatever Happened To The Working Class? are Billy Bragg-esque polemics. But even this doom and gloom is delivered in a jaunty, irresistible mix of pop, punk and folk. ●

These are tricky times for satirists. While the first season of Utopia drew a sharp and savvy portrait of Australian politics, it was a hard task to make their politicians appear more comical and ridiculous than those currently running the country. Just as The Daily Show has long been America’s most trusted news source, comedy like this often feels closer to the truth behind power than more straight-faced analysis. ●

Elina Reddy is a Ukrainian-born, award-winning artist who lives in Beaumaris with her husband and two children, aged eight and 12. After graduating from Melbourne University with a double degree in arts and social work, she was a social worker with the Salvation Army Crisis Centre and Centrelink. She is staging her fourth solo exhibition, titled Faces and Places. How long have you lived in Beaumaris? Arriving from the Ukraine 24 years ago, I knew exactly where I wanted to live. It was Bayside. But it didn’t happen straight away; I lived near Melbourne Uni for convenience. When I met my husband, Travis, and started planning a family, we moved here. Where do you go for the perfect gift? Mostly I love giving my paintings to friends. I feel I am giving them a creative part of myself. I also enjoy donating my paintings to various charities. For a great cup of coffee? Aunty Betty’s and The Parlor, out on the deck beneath

the big tree. I also love Local Italian in Sandringham for its cosy European atmosphere. For a family night out? Six Keys is very child-friendly, has great food and a lovely atmosphere. For a sneaky takeaway? Harvest Fare, for its delicious traditional home-cooked meals. The owner wakes at 4am to cook them. He also hangs my paintings there. For a pick-me-up when you’re feeling blue? No matter how I feel, painting is my way of life. I love Ricketts Point, watching the swans and pelicans. My Ukrainian grandma loves the café there, especially the potato wedges and sour cream. » Elina’s exhibition opens on August 23 at the Brighton Schoolhouse, 15 St Andrews Street, Brighton.

WEIGHTY ISSUE How do we give teens a positive body image, asks CHERYL CRITCHLEY

N

ext time you’re tempted to point out that your teenager has gained weight – don’t. While well-meaning, it can contribute to an obsession with weight and possibly an eating disorder. It has never been easier for girls – and boys – to develop a warped sense of body image. It was bad enough when today’s parents were young, with magazines and fashion models projecting an unattainable ideal. These days it’s everywhere, with the internet bombarding us with rake-thin celebrities, extreme diets and pro-anorexia blogs celebrating the dangerously underweight. Some media outlets don’t help by attacking celebrities who gain a few grams. Butterfly Foundation chief executive Christine Morgan says almost one in 10 Australians will experience an eating disorder requiring clinical intervention at some point in their lives. “People of all demographics are affected, including men and women of all ages, and children as young as five,” she says. The number seeking help is rising too; the

foundation has seen a 202 per cent rise in calls in 2013. Negative body image is a modifiable risk factor that can lead to serious social, medical and mental health issues, including eating disorders. Research shows people who diet to change their body shape are 18 times more likely to develop an eating disorder within six months, and one in five times more likely to develop an eating disorder over 12 months. How parents deal with body image is crucial. We must send our kids positive health messages and love our own bodies. I’ve always told my girls, now 14 and 16, that they don’t have to fit anyone else’s often distorted ideal. As Christine says: “Children are very sensitive to messages about body image and appearance from their parents. Often you may not even be aware of the message your child is hearing from you.” ● ccritchley@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.nedc.com.au

E AT I N G D I S O R D E R SIGNS Eating disorders are hard to recognise, warning signs include: Withdrawal from social events and activities that they used to enjoy. A focus on diets, calories, health and particular foods. They might become irritable or anxious around dinner time. Complaints about their looks, e.g. “I’m ugly” or “I’m fat”.

(ISTOCK)

Frequent weight changes or rapid weight loss. Changes in clothing styles such as wearing baggy clothing. If you notice any of these signs, seek help as early as possible.

T H E B U T T E R F LY F O U N D AT I O N C E O Cultural ideals portrayed by the mass media play an important role in the development of body dissatisfaction. People of all ages are bombarded with images that often promote unrealistic and highly stylised [figures that] cannot be achieved in real life. Parents can help boost body esteem by making positive and accepting comments about their child’s appearance and weight. Love and accept your own body and be conscious of the messages you send to your kids. Don’t talk about diets. Negative commentary can make them uncomfortable and encourage disorted eating behaviours and negative body image. Celebrate diversity and emphasise how loved and valued your child is, no matter their weight, shape or size. Talk to your child about the way they feel about the way they look. If they feel safe to talk to you, then they are likely to share feelings about their bodies. While GPs might not be formally trained in detecting an eating disorder, they are a good first base for discussing your concerns before approaching the topic with your child, or before organising an intervention or conversation. ● CHRISTINE MORGAN Chief executive of The Butterfly Foundation, National support line: 1800 334 673 www.butterflyfoundation.org.au

T H E S C H O O L P SYC H O LO G I S T At Firbank we have a holistic approach in our well-being programs. We emphasise the importance of students developing a sense of self-worth. We invite experts, such as Elizabeth North from The Self Centre and Enlighten Education (The Butterfly Effect) to present at personal development days across all year levels. We deal with body image and nutrition through our personal development, food technology, physical education and outdoor education curriculum. Commencing in year 7, we focus on healthy eating, body image and mental health. Staff are vigilant in identifying body image issues. Senior staff and I work with parents of students at risk to ensure a combined approach. We have an open-door policy and I supervise provisional psychologists, ensuring there are always several professionals with whom girls can talk. If there are concerns, I have a team of people to whom I refer, such as Dr Linsey Atkins (Hope Family Clinic) and dieticians.

he describes her personal aesthetic as “homeless rockstar”, but hospitality It Girl Jess Ho actually parks her Balenciagas in an apartment in a heritage-listed building in the heart of the Melbourne CBD. With tram and train stops at the door, and soaring ceilings, the apartment suits the restaurant blogger and social media wunderkind famously recruited by Chin Chin to give its brand more bang. “I did not want to live in a cookie-cutter sky box,” Jess says. “I like that this is an old building and has great bones. My ultimate plan, when the owner of the place next door dies, is to buy it, knock down the wall and live in a real space.” Not that Jess, 27, is home much these days. With her gig on Channel Seven’s Restaurant Revolution, she’s been advising on contestants’ pop-up eateries across Australia in between opening her own sleek wine bar, Smalls, in Yarra Place, South Melbourne. ● SARAH HARRIS sharris@theweeklyreview.com » Restaurant Revolution airs on Channel Seven, 8pm, Thursdays, au.tv.yahoo.com/ restaurant-revolution/ » Smalls smallsbar.com.au

In reality, it was a 10-kilometre bike ride from where Ryan grew up to Pin Oak Court, the Vermont South cul-de-sac that is the setting for the fictional Ramsay Street. “I lived in Chartwell Drive, Wantirna, in a mission-brown brick house with my parents Joan and Des, older brother Justin and younger brother Gareth,” Ryan says. “It had archways and that kind of yellow-brown glass with a pattern that looked like the bottom of bottles. Half the walls and ceiling were clad with pine, and the bathroom wallpaper featured cherubs with soap. “Out the back there was a sandpit where I used to play with my Matchbox cars and make little tracks and build carports out of sticks and leaves. When I was really little, I went through a stage where I liked eating cat food and we didn’t have a cat, but this house down the road did. I remember going there and putting my hand through the cat gate to get the cat food, and not just once.

TRI-LEVEL LIVING

JACK’S PARK

RESIDENCES

Mirvac has designed larger, flexible tri-level houses in response to buyer demand. Mirvac head of residential John Carfi says buyers want homes that can grow with them and offer a flexibility of uses over time. The result is a three-level dwelling that includes a self-contained bedroom and en suite on the ground level that can be used as a home office or accommodation for grandparents who might move in later in life. John says it is also a popular option for families with adult children living at home. ●

At the heart of Jack Rd is Jack’s Park, an 1800-square-metre central park providing family-focused amenities and leafy outlooks. Lump Sculpture Studio, best known for its work on the MasterChef set and the Chelsea Flower Show, has been commissioned to design sculptural elements and decorative screens. MDG Landscape Architects’ design provides a naturalistic setting for picnic and barbecue areas, a play boat, table tennis, and three trampolines set in rubber surrounds as well as further play equipment. ●

Jack Rd’s six-star energy-rated houses feature open-plan living areas and private backyards. Mirvac architects have planned houses to maximise solar penetration, privacy and living spaces. Front garden landscaping, fencing and driveways are included as part of Mirvac’s “no hidden costs” policy. Mirvac’s interior designers have selected neutral tones, Smeg appliances, stone benchtops, porcelain floor tiles and wool-blend carpets. Optional upgrades include stone, mirror or mosaic splashbacks. ●

Location, location

On the beach side of the Nepean Highway and just a few minutes’ drive from the bay, Jack Rd’s location means residents can walk to Cheltenham station and Westfield Southland. Nearby schools include Cheltenham and Sandringham secondary colleges, Cheltenham and Sandringham primary schools and Firbank Grammar School.

ALBERT PARK \ 7 DUNDAS PLACE A ACE

f you’re going to build 500 metres from the beach, you might as well make the most of it. The house you design in your petite suburban street might be fairly traditional, and handy to essential and optional-extra day-to-day amenities, but it can incorporate plenty of that holiday-house vibe when it has the joy of a seascape for inspiration. This imposing European-style house is as functional as the best, with west-facing indoor/outdoor spaces for get-togethers around the barbecue, well-fitted kitchen and bathrooms, and a balance of bedrooms and study areas. But its bayside position was the incentive to create something extra – a first-floor parents’ retreat that takes space, privacy and relaxation to another level. The palatial main bedroom is 7.5 metres x 5.8 metres, exactly the size of the living area below it, and that excludes its en suite, his-and-hers walk-in wardrobes and separate shoe room. “They sell whole apartments this size,” says the vendor. But that’s not all. Slide back the room’s west-facing glass doors and the balcony outside extends the space further. The view takes in most of Brighton Beach footy ground on South Road and stretches over rooftops to Port Phillip Bay. To the south is the low-lying roof-scape of an aged-care facility. “It’s my favourite thing, to sit here in the afternoon and read the Saturday newspaper or a book,” the vendor says. “It’s so tranquil yet there are things going on you can watch.” But that’s not all, either. What looks like a cupboard door in the bedroom leads up a narrow staircase to a cosy rooftop terrace with 180-degree views, sweeping from the Frankston area, across to the You Yangs and Williamstown’s twinkling night lights, and continuing to the West Gate Bridge. Set up a telescope and the hours would drift by in this little sun-soaked sanctum. Back in the real world downstairs, the hub is the kitchen. It has grey glass splashbacks, granite benchtops, an island bench and the hero – a bi-energy stove that switches between electricity and gas. Mind you, when hosting the local footy team for steak nights, the focus is on the meals and living areas, which open to the wide patio through glass doors. Half of the patio is undercover and the rest catches the north and west sun. The remainder of the garden is a buffer of lawn. There’s also a morning patio on the east side, past the laundry, and a balcony front-and-centre that looks over the newly landscaped front garden. The balance of the house comprises two bedrooms, bathroom and an open study area upstairs, plus an extra bedroom/study downstairs. Wrought iron, cedar window frames, symmetry in the façade and floors of Tasmanian blackwood parquetry and gunmetal grey carpet add style. The double garage has glass sliding doors to the rear lawn, and internal house entry near an understair storeroom. The seven-metre double-height stairwell is a key design inclusion by Brighton architect Les Finnis, whose brief was to emphasise spaciousness and light. In this front corner of the house, the American oak staircase rising within its light-filled majestic void is as important to the story of this house as its wide water views. ● JACQUI HAMMERTON property@theweeklyreview.com.au

Greg Hocking Holdsworth \ 8644 5500 Price \ $1.5 million + Auction \ August 22 at 2.30pm Close to the city and bookended by parks and Bridport Street village, this part of Albert Park is home to plenty of beautiful Victorian houses. No. 7 Dundas Place is no exception. First, there’s the street appeal. A gate precedes a symmetrical front garden and an iron-lace-trimmed verandah. Inside, the grandeur continues with high ceilings and fireplaces. At the front is a formal living room with a bay window looking out to the street. With its carpeted floors and original fireplace, this room is perfect for the winter months. At the back of the uncomplicated floor plan is the kitchen and meals area, which has big windows giving a view of the north-east-facing courtyard. As with so many of these Victorian houses, the beauty is in the detail. Cornices, architraves, mantelpieces and an arched hallway reveal the house’s heritage. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a large bathroom, which has had a more modern makeover. The west-facing main bedroom has light filtering through french doors that lead to a balcony. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

It’s all about the stunning view of Elwood beach and the blue of Port Philip Bay from this penthouse apartment. Patio doors lead out to a balcony that stretches across the property. Parquetry floors shine under downlights in the vast living room set back from this space, awash with light from windows on two sides. Sleek black cabinetry and dark stone benchtops are punctuated by stainless-steel appliances in the spacious kitchen with its deep pantry. There’s a handy servery to the meals area. French doors lead to an additional balcony that also looks onto the bay. A big study has a wall of bookshelves, with a powder room tucked next to the laundry. The main bedroom is at the rear of the apartment, with a fantastic corner walk-in wardrobe that leads through to a huge en suite with dual vanity and shower. Another bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and connects to the shared bathroom with deep spa tub and separate shower via a sliding door. The property has two car spaces. ● STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

Sporting a stylish Scandinavian look, this spacious two-storey offering has a unique vibe. American oak floors line the open-plan ground floor, which also has a high ceiling. There’s a bright lounge up front, laid out before a broad window with plantation shutters. Six oversized light bulbs hang in a C-shape above the pale stone kitchen. It has a workspace so deep it has its own window. There’s a stainless-steel oven and a breakfast bar, as well as a wall of timber-panelled cabinetry with a built-in wine rack. A relaxed meals area and lounge has an entertainment unit in dark grey, and a ceiling fan. Cedar bifold doors lead out to a courtyard garden with wall-mounted plant pots. Climb the timber staircase under a big skylight and you come to a fantastic study with built-in desk, storage and bookshelves. The main bedroom sits to the rear, with bifold doors out to a balcony, while the second bedroom is just past the study. Both have built-in wardrobes. The gleaming bathroom has another skylight. There’s off-street parking for one car. ● STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

30 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ AUGUST 19, 2015


BRIGHTON \ 33 MIDDLE CRESCENT Designed by award-winning architects Rothe Lowman, this contemporary property impresses on all levels. From the street, the façade presents as a series of rhythmic panels. A curved driveway leads to the entry, which has a large portico supported by rendered columns. This architectural statement features a spacious atrium, which brings plenty of light indoors. The floor plan flows seamlessly. The formal living room has a large Jetmaster gas log fireplace and tall windows that face a lap pool, which extends into a recreational pool and exudes a sense of calm. Understated luxury comes from considered use of materials such as floor-to-ceiling windows, which frame concrete floors, and timber detailing that complements stainless-steel surfaces. The kitchen is a hard-working and practical space. Stainless-steel benchtops, glass splashbacks and integrated European appliances show craftsmanship. The pared-back aesthetic extends upstairs, which has carpeted floors and a white palette. An open retreat with views of the surrounding leafy street leads into four large bedrooms. The two bedrooms along a boundary wall both have access to a luxurious walk-in wardrobe and en suite. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

AUGUST 19, 2015 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 31


BRIGHTON \ 372 STT KILDA KILDA STREET The best of two worlds co-exists harmoniously in this immaculate house, a stroll from Brighton’s Golden Mile beachfront and mansions. Behind the high brick wall and automatic gate fronting St Kilda Street lies a haven of peace and beauty. Built in the 1920s of solid brick, handsome Capakee (its original name) retains its high, ornate ceilings, stunning leadlight windows and doors, open fireplaces and Baltic pine floorboards. It was reborn in 2009 with all the accoutrements of modern luxury living, rewired and restumped, and extended with new exterior brickwork seamlessly matching the original. Each principal room is magnificent in its own way: the front bedroom with its large window seat, leadlights and pressed metal ceiling; a second bedroom with blue-tiled fireplace; and the formal lounge with showpiece bay window of leadlights and stunning timber-panelled ceiling with candle-style chandelier. There is a smaller third bedroom at the end of the wide hallway and a designer monochromatic bathroom with rain shower and black chandelier. The modern era begins with a dream of a kitchen (Caesarstone benches and glossy cabinetry, large island and Miele and Smeg appliances), serving the dining and living area. Bifold doors can extend the space when the weather warms, out to a pretty courtyard. A brick wall ensures privacy. ● TERESA MURPHY

BRIGHTON \ 66A ASLING STREET Wow. If you lived here, why take a holiday? This fabulous family property is more like a Port Douglas resort, a beautiful white haven with plantation shutters on every window, tropical gardens, marble bathrooms and a heated pool and spa. Built in the 1980s, the house was reborn a few years ago with interiors designed by Brighton’s White Chalk. Upstairs the light-filled, white expanse of open-plan, oak-floored living spilling out to a gorgeous terrace at back and curved balcony at front is a triumph – aesthetically and space wise. With these treetop views and serene ambience, the wider world feels very far away. Inside is toasty, thanks to hydronic heating, but roll on summer. This is an entertainer’s paradise with glamorous Bosch kitchen upstairs and a fully equipped kitchenette below, serving poolside and the large media room. There’s yet another family area downstairs, leading to the decked pool and lawn. The house is air-conditioned throughout. The main bedroom, with marble en suite and walk-through wardrobe, is a retreat of its own, opening to the deck and pool. With so many rooms, including five large bedrooms, and outdoor zones, there’s enough space and privacy for all generations of the family. The vendors say they will miss their wonderful home. It’s easy to see why. ● TERESA MURPHY
