A curious soapy film about an insurance agent in Melbourne returning to Adelaide where his brother and family live. They run a garage on Military Road in Adelaide (still there) which is struggling.
Ben Mendelsohn is an apprentice and Frankie J. Holden his brother. In the first scene set in the past, a contemporary trade van drives past (I bet the clothes they wear in these scenes were bought straight off the rack at Harris Scarfe).
There is more interest in seeing the old places in Adelaide that have gone ; Magic Mountain and The Wizard's Cavern in Glenelg (replaced with ugly tower blocks owned by Chinese investors), South Road going up to the overpass, the old Colonnades at Noarlunga, Castle Plaza on South Rd just after it was built, Commercial Rd in Port Adelaide, the Marion bowling club, the Cowleys Pie Cart next to the Adelaide Railway station that sold those terrible pie floaters.
Product placements South Australia Brewing (Southwark and West End), Modern Motor magazine, Peter Jackson cigarettes, Chiko rolls, Vegemite, and Castrol.
