518    Originally produced by National Film and Sound Archive of 
       Australia in 1981. 
520    In 14’s Good, 18’s Better, Gillian Armstrong re-introduces
       audiences to Diana, Josie and Kerry - three 18-year-old 
       women living in suburban Adelaide. The film is a sequel to
       Smokes and Lollies, which Armstrong made four years 
       earlier when the girls were 14. In this film, their 
       current lives and views are counterpointed by flashbacks 
       to their lives and expectations when they were 14.  The 
       footage is intercut, juxtaposing the pimply, rough-edged 
       young teens with their more subdued, assured and scarred 
       18-year-old selves. At 14 the great fear was pregnancy. 
       Just after Smokes and Lollies, Josie fulfilled all 
       parental prophecies by becoming pregnant. At 15, she lay 
       alone in the maternity ward, visited only once by her own 
       disappointed father. “I had plenty of flowers, anyway,” 
       she laughs. Josie rang the florists herself and ordered 
       bouquets in the names of people she selected from the 
       phone book. When she describes the weeks following the 
       birth, spent in a furnished room with “no TV; just a 
       clock, and it used to tick, all day long”, the image is as
       lonely and as lucid as anything Bergman ever devised.  The
       film has a kind of black, wince-inducing wit as it 
       contrasts the bold, free-thinking 14-year-olds with the 
       constrained and authoritarian 18-year-olds, who are 
       already planning regulations for their own offspring.  A 
       co-production of the Big Picture Company, M&L Pty Limited 
       and Film Australia. © 2011 National Film and Sound Archive
