Another good Aussie Film
6 May 2002 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

River Street would without a doubt be one of those feel good movies. yet i think that this great film, a film that seems to have been unnoticed by the movie going public on the whole. River Street sends the message that what you want to be is not necessity what you actually and that it is possible to find love in some of the most unexpected places. basically the plot is that Ben an ambitious Real estate agent who is going to marry the boss' daughter and that he has been given the deal of a life time being that he was offered a %50 stake in a real estate deal and all he has to do is attend the auction. Yet everything goes wrong and he is sentenced to 100 hours community service at the River Street Drop in centre.
