Year: 1985
Country: Australia
Run Time: 98 minutes

JENNY KISSED ME is a contemporary love story about a mismatched couple and a mismatched parent/child relationship. Carol and her 10-year-old daughter Jenny live with Lindsay near Melbourne. Carol finds motherhood difficult and resents Lindsay's obsessive attachement to Jenny, who is not his child. A move to the bush creates more hostility and Carol takes Jenny and runs off to the bright lights of Melbourne. The new lifestyle includes a fancy apartment shared with a friend with whom Carol now works in a massage parlor. Jenny runs away in search of Lindsay and is placed in a children's home. Abducting her at gunpoint, Lindsay creates a happy home for them in their bush hideout until the inevitable final separation.
