Storyline

All Wally Mellish, an ex-convict in 1960s Australia, wants to do is live a quiet life with his girlfriend Beryl. Unfortunately when two police officers come around to disturb this, a misunderstanding quickly becomes out of control, resulting Wally, Beryl and her child being trapped in their house, surrounded by armed police under the impression that Wally is holding everyone hostage. Events quickly spiral into a media circus as, through the siege, Wally - inadvertently - manages to become a symbol for the anti-war movement. Written by Scott Nisbet

Beautiful film
22 April 1999 | by (Los Angeles, USA) – See all my reviews

"Mr. Reliable" is a must-see movie if you're into romance flicks. I was channel surfing and discovered this film on Sundance channel. It's very hard to condense the greatness of this movie in a couple of words but it's very excellent. I highly recommend this to everyone. Trust me.
