We've Only Just Begun
Dear Karen, my name is Angela Giuseppina Lumicisi and I am your number one Carpenterian fan.
In the 1970’s a good Italian girl goes to school, gets married and then has babies. But what happens if you want more?
The Carpenters, one of the most successful and cherished bands of their time, are a beacon of hope for one little Italian girl growing up in the confines of her traditional life in Melbourne. Karen’s soaring and heart wrenching vocals spoke to Angela in a way no-one had before. It’s like you’re singing to me and know what I’m going through, how is that?
Karen and Angela’s lives begin to intertwine through their weight struggles, their love life but ultimately through Karen's untimely end Angela finds the strength to be the person she has always wanted to be.
And as Karen’s life ends, Angela’s has only just begun.
