Quotes

Marge (referring to Australia): Do you think this is a country which honors ordinariness?
Dick: No. Well once...maybe...you know, there was once a time when it was impossible to be different. Anyone with any nouse had to pack up and clear out, but it's not like that anymore. And to keep harking back to it--that's what irritates me about that book. It's just safe territory. It's not going to shake anyone up.
Marge: Well, it's shaken me up. Maybe you don't read between the lines.
Dick: I hate nostalgia.
Marge: It's NOT nostalgia.
Dick: Where are the people ...

Tara Morice
25 July 1999 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

I picked "Hotel Sorrento" from a video shop because I saw the name "Tara Morice". I like her performance as Fran in Strictly Ballroom. Later, I bought this wonderful film. And I wonder if there is the real Sorrento in Australia. I want to go there because the film shows me how beautiful the place is.

Hotel Sorrento is the story of three sisters who grew up together in a small town. However, they went on their ways and have their own success. One is a writer in London, the other lives in New York as a business woman, while the third stays at their family home. One day, the family reunion is held. That causes the change of their lives which will never be the same again.
