CHARLIE AND BOOTS - written and directed by Dean Murphy (Strange Bedfellows), starring Paul (CROCODILE DUNDEE) Hogan and Shane (KENNY) Jacobson.

When his wife Grace collapses from a fatal stroke while celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary, Charlie (Paul Hogan) withdraws into depression. His youngest son Boots (Shane Jacobson), decides to take him on a 3000 mile road trip adventure to the northernmost tip of the country. It’s a breathtaking journey through some of the most beautiful locations in Australia, and for that matter the world; places never before seen on film. But all that beauty is lost on Charlie, and Boots has his work cut out for him if he is ever going to get his father out of his funk and bridge the gap that has grown between them.

In the first three weeks of its Australian opening CHARLIE AND BOOTS grossed over $2.5 million.
