Unnervingly accurate look at small-town New Zealand.
15 April 2000 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

When the chairwoman of the Waimatua school jubilee committee unexpectedly falls victim to a farm accident, local man Billy Williams finds himself in an unusual position of responsibility.

It's fair to say the upcoming 75th jubilee is taking its toll not just on Billy and the close-knit community, but on Billy's wife, Pauline -- who goes through her own personal crisis.

The humour covers several bases, from wry comment to outright slapstick, and the cultural references are dead-on, though the characters are borderline stereotype. Sometimes, though, this film is so close to the mark it's scary.
