Another decent fine Aussie drama worth it's weight in rental
14 March 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A budding writer, (Robert Coleby) really pays the price for fooling around with a seemingly innocent woman, really a nutter, who makes up a case of rape, where he's charged, and a grueling trial begins. Without his knowledge of her being looney, until it comes up later, by then it can't save Coleby, as other factor come into play. Her trumpery of rape in it's early stages was that of an initial and believable performance. The way this trial unfolds, as heard by both sides was interesting. (Christine Amor) the vindictive mistress using a manipulation of lies that sound more like truths, only pulled poor Coleby further under, we could see a worse fate awaiting him, at the hands of this bi..h. He has really dug a hole for himself, losing his one true love, (Cheryl Ladd) who really believed in him. His job too suffers, bringing a disreputable stink to his company, where his friend, takes him out to lunch and tennis, and breaks the news, with Coleby, slamming his last tennis ball, at the thwacking sound of a racket. As other movies show us, such at Fatal Attraction and Disclosure, etc, having an affair with the wrong woman can really come back to bite us. As far as the court case extends throughout the film, by it's end, we feel as though we've really put through the ringer, and poor Coleby is really taking a beating plus some jail time, where he's not popular amongst some bigger fish, one guy knocking up against him on a staircase. He actually begins running a writing class for other cons. Hope and belief do win, where he finally gets that letter every budding writer dreams of. Ladd too, really hasn't moved on, where you think her new relationship with a guy in the country will blossom, but is cut short at Ladd's request. Despite being a 90 minute film, Now and Forever, seems quite a straining watch. You have to be patient. It's a love story, with a good cast of capable actors + American export Ladd. It's one of those better quality Aussie dramas, that work so well, a blink or you'll miss it film, sitting on a video shelf. And too here is a message to the dangers of infidelity, and what you can lose in result, but too everyone deserves a second chance, especially if it's with that special one.
