Coming of age movie set in New Zealand Or Australia where young girl lives near the beach and her little brother drowns while she was supposed to be watching him

I believe this came out in the late 90s or early 2000s. I think the main girl in it had dark short hair and had some family problems… I think an older guy was interested in her and she went out to meet him or someone while she was supposed to be taking care of her little brother and he drowns. Very dark sad movie but it really left and impression on me and I’d like to know what it is! Thank you!
