The Stan Original Film Windcatcher will make you want to hold a family movie night.

Good news, folks. A uniquely Australian coming-of-age family movie is dropping in time for the Easter holidays.

The Stan Original Film Windcatcher tells an empowering story about perseverance, survival, triumph, overcoming adversity, and the importance of friendship. 

Starring singing superstar Jessica Mauboy in her first film role since The Sapphires, Windcatcher revolves around the unlikely friendship between Percy Boy, a 10-year-old Aboriginal boy played by newcomer Lennox Monaghan, and his crew of misfits. The small-town underdogs join forces to battle a group of grade-five bullies and win a school sports day title. 

While training for the big day, Percy Boy discovers a supernatural ability to see Lost Souls – a gift passed down from his grandfather. Percy Boy must overcome his fears and past loss to chase his dreams.

Monaghan leads an all-star cast of Aussie talent, which includes Looking for Alibrandi’s Pia Miranda, F.A.N.G’s Max Turner, I Am Woman’s Coco Greenstone, Mystery Road: Origin’s Kelton Pell, The Twelve’s Ngali Shaw, Wentworth’s Lisa Maza and Packed to the Rafters star, Jessica McNamee.

This will be Mauboy’s first movie role in 12 years with the chart-topper also making this her first non-singing film role, with The Sapphires and Bran Nue Dae actress instead focusing on her acting skills this time around, playing Percy Boy’s Aunty Cressida.
