A 2 Act play that was adapted for television, addressing such subjects as Rivalry amongst friends and Racism in South Africa
15 September 1999 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Paul and Bill play two friends going to a party in Johannesburg (South Africa's largest city). Bill's character is more withdrawn than his outgoing friend. At the party Paul takes Bill's girl and has his way with her in a car. Later they stop at a Roadhouse (The Palace)which is closing for the day and being looked after by a lone black man who is closing for the night. The two argue, there is much dialogue as the dynamics of their friendship and lives are examined through the very well written screenplay. If you are looking for action give it a skip. It is only in the end of the movie where Bill's character (who has elicited sympathy the whole time) shows his dark side, through his statement "They'll believe me, I'm White" referring to the police.
