Quotes

David Kennedy: It's Jenny. I want her and she wants Mick. I'm Georgie Burke and Mick's Dad. Now go.
Frances Kennedy: You are not George Burke. You are not your father. You are your father's son. I can't find words to express how proud I am of you. You're great. If she can't see that, she's not worthy of you. And if she can, she'll come around.

12 August 2000 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

A fantastic film featuring great Aussie talent. Director Mark Lamprell dealt with the potentially sob-inducing subject matter in a way which was humorous and refreshing. Definitely the highlight of the 2000 Brisbane International Film Festival. Australian film veteran, Sam Neill was, as always, fabulous in the role of Frank's uni professor and new talent Matt Newton gave a performance which will have people saying, " you know, Bert Newton, Matt's dad!" Get out and see this movie!!!
