A Comfortable War

Feature Film – an historical drama inspired by true events.

During 1939, in the last days of peace before the outbreak of WWII, twenty Viennese children toured Australia as members of the Vienna Mozart Boys' Choir. A Comfortable War tells how these boys were prevented from returning to Europe and were forced to make Australia their home as their handsome and charismatic choirmaster Dr. Georg Gruber and a beautiful young woman called Henrietta Marsh became embroiled in a tale of sex, music and betrayal. And how Willy, the fragile, talented boy who adored Gruber was left alone, homeless and broken – the eternal "lost boy".
