Audience footage of the rock concert at the start of the movie was taken from a KISS concert in Sydney, Australia in November 1980. One can actually see fans holding a sign with a message to KISS band member Ace Frehley at one point. See more »
Rather stylish low budget romantic comedy set on the far northern beaches of Sydney's fabulous coastline. Palm Beach is the strip of seaside famous for it's wealth and lifestyle and WEEKEND WITH KATE plants itself there for some good looking entanglements. Handsome cast members Colin Friels and Jerome Erhlers play well opposite paramour Catherine McClements and locally all three are well known for both stage and television roles. KATE looks good on a movie screen and in its initial run was quite well received. Oz film makers don't do the romantic comedy movie very often and this one succeeds well enough to be a surprise. It has not been on TV for ten years and I have never seen it on DVD, so a reappearance could be welcome. WEEKEND WITH KATE is quite enjoyable in it's sparkling way. Another Oz film of a similar theme is LUCKY BREAK which did not do well.
