John Ruane in Dead Letter Office

Dead Letter Office

1998 NR

Lonely Alice (Miranda Otto) has maintained a one-sided correspondence with her long-lost father since childhood. Hoping to track him down, Alice takes a job in the postal office that's returned her letters to her as undeliverable. At work, she gradually develops a kinship with her boss, Frank (George DelHoyo), also a wounded soul, and the two embark on a journey of romance and self-discovery. John Ruane directs this charming Australian comedy.
