Storyline

A dark-sheep type of man returns to his hometown after a prolonged absence. While he's been gone ludicrous rumours have spread about his whereabouts. Is he a big footy player or is he a film star. Turns out he's still the same lovable but not likable sort of fellow he was when he left. He wants his old girlfriend back even though she is married to his brother now and is pregnant. For money he nets in mullets (hence his nickname, Mullet) but no'one wants to buy them. People begin to get sick of him being back again and become hostile, telling him to leave again.

Trivia

David Caesar wrote the role of Mullet with Ben Mendelsohn in mind, but thought he was too young for the role. By the time he found funding, Mendelsohn was the ideal age for the role of Mullet. Mendelsohn had participated in most of the staged readings of the script, but always played another role. See more »

Fabulous picture!
1 October 2001 | by (Vancouver BC) – See all my reviews

This picture is about communications and feelings, something that is uncomfortable subject matter for some folks. The film deals realistically with characters drawn from life, where it is always easier to escape (to work, to play, to the pub, to drink and drugs) than to face something painful within oneself. Not many people like to deal with such subjects, though the pain of self-doubts and lost loves affects us all. Lots of cultures have provided quick escape routes from facing such pain. This picture makes very plain the price to be paid for not facing up to what is happening. If you were raised to avoid your feelings and ignore saying what you need to say, you won't like this picture. I was raised like that and I have had to learn -- painfully -- to deal with life other ways. Having learned about my own escape routes, I thought this picture was very meaningful. If you are looking for some lessons about how to deal with this stuff, look no further. The film is a gem, I thought. The plot is very credible, the characters extremely realistic, the acting simply spot-on and the production top notch. I recommend this very highly.
