A Brilliant Movie
18 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brilliant Lies is truly a brilliant movie. There is terrific acting among the Carides sisters, Zoe & Gia. Anthony LaPaglia is surprisingly like any other Australian actor around. Just imagine that he and Gia are married to each other. But I was very surprised by Zoe's performance as the lesbian feminist sister. It is not patronizing or preachy but rather touching. This story has layers of depth for the above average movie. While it takes something like sexual harassment to a story worth telling, neither Gary nor Susy are truly innocent of each other. Maybe the depth of the story is truly worth brilliant and terrific Australian film. I still can't believe that Anthony is actually Australian than an American Italian New Yorker or from Jersey.
