Show Summary

Matthew and Son is a 1984 made-for-TV drama, directed by Gary Conway and filmed in Australia. It features a young Nicole Kidman in one of her earliest film appearances. The movie is loosely based on the life of Dr. John Birrell, a well-known Australian police surgeon and road safety advocate. Kidman plays the role of Bridget Elliot, one of a group of high school seniors. After one of them is murdered in an apparent drug deal, the others find themselves hunted and threatened by the killers. The film provided a start for Australian soap star Darius Perkins and comedian Greg Fleet, and also stars Paul Cronin, Paula Duncan, and Bruce Atkins.
