Petersen is a 1974 Australian drama film directed by Tim Burstall. Tony Petersen (Jack Thompson), a retired australian rules football star, enrolls at university to study for an arts degree. After several sexual encounters he returns to his wife Susie (Jacki Weaver) and drops out of university. Petersen was a box-office success and received wide distribution in the UK and US under the title Jock Petersen. Petersen is first and foremost a sobering critique of Australian life in the early 1970s. Petersen is one of the better social dramas from the early years of the Australian film revival. Stanley Kubrick praised the film on its release, particularly Burstall's direction and Jack Thompson's lead performance. Jack Thompson won the Hoyts Prize for Best Performance at the 1975 AFI Awards for his performance in Petersen. Petersen grossed $1,363,000 at the box office in Australia, which is equivalent to $9,200,250 in 2009 dollars.
