Two yummy men trying to win "the love" of the same gal
7 July 2005 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

Okay, it's a bit more than that, but not by very much! The delectable Mr. Weaving and the too-good-to-be-real Mr. Everett star as a lower class working man and an idly rich scion of Autrailian society, respectively. There is a girl, of course, and a tragedy that places all three in awkward new dynamics.

It is a bit over-the-top with the melodrama, but I knew that going in. (I was on a Hugo Weaving video binge!) I was happily surprised by how much I enjoyed Rupert Everett's Lord Harry, which could've been a tiresome guy to hang around with for the length of the movie. I believe this was the movie where I realized I would be a fan of his no matter the movie he was in.

Hugo Weaving's man of the people/salt of the earth/been there-done that role could have been tiresome as well. Actually, he sort of is, but this is a soapy vehicle, so everyone must change to a degree, and Ned Devine does.

Sadly, I wasn't fond of the female lead at all, the character not the actress. Catherine McClements was lovely and reminded me that I need to exercise more, but Sarah was not a lead female I liked very much. The sad thing is I can't figure out why. Was it due to the writing, the acting, or that the men were shown and written as more fun to hang about with? Still, it was advertised as soapy good guilty fun and it was!
