Romantic comedy that mixes magical realism with traditional Australian urban-outback contrasts. The plot centers on a bored woman (the eponymous Wendy) who conjures up the perfect lover, Jake, while her husband is out on the road suffering comical mishaps. Written by
This movie centres around three main characters, Wendy, who constantly reads romantic novels, her husband Ronnie who is preoccupied with trying to earn a living as a salesman, and Jake (a lady's man). The film has that off-beat Australian style, such that you're never quite sure what will happen next, but it's quite a charming tale and well-worth viewing.
