Movies set in Adelaide aren't that common, so when one comes along, its sometimes nice to see something that isn't always just set in Melbourne or Sydney. Unfortunately, the Adelaide references were almost non-existent, and the dry suburban scenes could've been set in any Australian capital city's sprawl. And that was the closest thing to a highlight. For the most part, it was the directing and editing that let this film down. Decent actors saddled with flat, lifeless characters also didn't help. At times it almost seemed David Lynch-esqe, but alarmingly, by accident.
Even the shining light of Pia Miranda couldn't save this one - it went nowhere fast.
Its not a terrible film at all, just a little pointless.
