Liz has missed an appointment to have an abortion. She has to keep her child, and neither her boyfriend Geoff nor child's father Neil are too happy about it. She can not decide which partner is better for her, and Neil makes a proposal to her when they attend the wedding of her best friend Prue and Mike. She probably prefers Geoff, but he is preoccupied with his girlfriend Bryony, who returned from abroad. Another friend, Ant, has written a script for documentary film, which is directed by a German and in which topless women, well, talk about their lives. Written by
I first saw this film at the Sydney Film Festival and absolutely loved it.
It is so fresh and funny yet very moving. Very New Zealand.
The soundtrack is sensational too. The acting is great and the script is very clever. The story is based around a group of friends at a particular time in their lives and you get to know and love them really fast. When I first heard the title I was sure I'd hate it but seeing this film was the highlight of that year's festival for me. If you don't know many films from New Zealand other than 'The Piano' this is a must-see. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
