Overview

A raw and powerful memoir of motherhood, autism and filmmaking by Australian director, Jocelyn Moorhouse. Jocelyn Moorhouse has a successful career as a gifted scriptwriter and film director, as well as a maintaining a marriage and a family of four children. How did she do it? Her memoir is a moving story of growing up with adoring parents and siblings. She knew early on that she wanted to be a filmmaker, and her dreams were encouraged by her family and by her teachers. Meeting P.J. Hogan, becoming parents and filmmakers together was a turning point. But when they discovered that two of their children were autistic, Jocelyn's life turned upside down. In Unconditional Love, she talks from the heart, with humour and intelligence, about her fears for her children, the highs and lows in her international career, about Hollywood and home, and about her love for what she does best-filmmaking and motherhood.

Reviews

'A beguiling memoir, written from the heart, revealing a life lived truly.' * Cate Blanchett * `A truly wonderful book, a heartfelt achievement. I read it over two days, unable to put it down.' * Jane Campion * `The triumph of the prodigal daughter.' * Sydney Morning Herald on The Dressmaker * `An enormously compelling character study.' * Guardian on Proof * `A darkly clever Australian drama...Miss Moorhouse's direction is as crisply controlled as her characters' banter, and as quietly insidious in its own way.' * New York Times on Proof * `Unconditional Love is a shining example of the strength of mothers. Jocelyn's sensitivity and humour made me fall in love with her passion for filmmaking and her family. Her resilience is inspiring and beautiful.' * Nicole Kidman *
