Storyline

Janey is on vacation with her brother, Jim, mother, Kate, and father Ed, at their beach house on the Mahurangi Peninsual in New Zealand. Ed and Kate, who are on the verge of divorce, sit around in the back yard all day drinking whiskey and Janey and Jim are left to their own devices. Cady, a local boatee who is having an affair with Kate, catches Janey's pubescent eye. In response to his wife's drinking problem and recurring infidelity, Ed turns to alcohol, ignoring his children almost as much as his wife, which eventually leads to a character's fate.

Uneasy Beauty
24 April 2006 | by (Berlin, GER) – See all my reviews

Visually and acting wise masterly, the coming-of-age-story of a teenage girl unfolds an atmospheric undertow which solidifies through the parenthetical film music and the non-involved voice from the off of the young protagonist. It's shot mainly in sepia which in its dim alignment contributes to the mysterious beauty of the film. Convincing ensemble: Sarah Peirse personifies Kate with a restless and lascivious sensuality. The performances of Alistair Browning and Marton Csokas require a much more subtlety than their "Lord of the Rings" parts. But the true heart of the film are the wonderful performances of the young artists: the 15 years old Alicia Fulford-Wierzbicki who got the New Zealand Film Award as Best Young Talent, and the honestly adorable Aaron Murphy, playing the young, cute brother Jim. "Cinema of Unease", beautiful and uncomfortable at the same time, dangerously calm with subtly accentuated shots of a dusky landscape, the story tells the chronicle of an announced death.
