A devil of a comedy
17 January 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing reviews for this film when it was first released in Australia about 3 years ago, and while they weren't great I thought I should see it anyway.

3 years on and I still hadn't seen the film but, luckily for me, it was on TV. While it was slow in patches there were some genuinely funny black comedic moments - pitch black! The plot is simple Richard Shorkinghorn is struggling to find funding for his "fountain of youth" project and insanely wealthy Grace Michael, Heather Mitchell, comes forward as a prospective svengali. Unknown to Richard his ex-fiance and co-worker Kate, Frances O'Connor, is also seeking the same backing for a remarkably similar project and Grace invites the two up to her country home for them to sell their idea to her. Godfrey User, Geoffrey Rush, and Grace's husband joins in the frivolity of the weekend and the story moves from there. The mere idea that Godfrey, the Federal Treasurer and later Prime Minister, is a satanic worshipper is reason alone to see this film (and not entirely surprising). Excellently played by all given the patchy nature of the film and I felt that it was probably helped by the continuous ads on the TV.
