I remember when Monkey Beach first came out I knew people were going to love it. And not just because I'm Eden's younger sister, or because she was able to capture the spiritual stories we like to share back home, but because I knew they would see what I could see: a storyteller who could help us lose ourselves in her character's universal story of struggle, yearning to belong, search for meaning, redemption and keep us laughing and on edge at the same time. Monkey Beach the book was embraced around the world and is becoming a classic, I have a strong feeling Monkey the Beach the movie will follow the same path.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
