this movie is insubstantial. it knows its insubstantial. it tells a cliched story with characters who are all skin-deep portraits of college students. there is nothing wrong with any of this- as long as it's charming and witty in execution-- It's not.
Truth be told, there are enjoyable moments to be found. The directing isn't too choppy for an indie film made on a small budget in a week. And the acting is pretty dang good with three of the leads going on to be major stars (Frances O'Connor, Radha Mitchell, and Matthew Day). But this movie is just too uneven with scenes that go nowhere, comic situations that aren't funny, or moments of serendipity that ring plastic
It's no surprise that the director of this never went onto direct another movie.
The story is about a group of Australian college students who have trouble with love. There's a lesbian couple that's currently broken up. A girl who's in love with a gigolo. And a sensitive med student who's in love with that girl.
The ending is pretty illogical, with everything ending tidily even though most of it doesn't make sense.
The movie has its occasional charm. But this movie doesn't attempt to make any kind of statement, be it through making interesting characters or communicating some kind of message.
Rent it if you have to, but I would not waste my money on this.
