Trivia

Director Craig Monahan explained what made screenwriter Sue Smith's script so appealing: "Sue sent me the script and I was very attracted to the structure as much as the story and the characters. Structure is such an important part of cinema, almost everything comes from that. I also felt it was something audiences could connect with emotionally and a story that needed to be told. It was wonderful. There was also the potential for some of the changes that economic rationalism has caused to be fed into the back story." See more »

Miscast and underdeveloped.
26 October 2004 | by mandyjr62See all my reviews

In a climate of poorly performing Australian feature films this offering did not prove to be any different.At a writers conference the screenwriter, when asked what the premise of the movie was, couldn't clearly articulate it. She mumbled something about "moving on" and "accepting loss"...say no more. The ideas were great but the script lacked a powerful driving narrative line. There was no clear protag and no "big idea" which feature films seem to require to keep the audience awake for two hours.

And as for the casting....if you want to get away with a 40 something man shagging a 16 year old girl then the actor needs to be ATTRACTIVE!! Hugo Weaving??...pulleeeeze!
