Disappointed
25 November 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have to say I expected more from this movie. With the great cast and interesting opener, I didn't envision nearly falling asleep halfway through.

While the actors did their best, the script could have used some of Ray's advice, in short, more editing!

Samuel Johnson's hangdog expression (familiar to those who watched The Secret Life of Us) was put to great effect as he experienced loss, love and even kidney failure. I like Sacha Horler, given her previous work in Soft Fruit and Praise, but she only appeared in two scenes! Colin Friels was gruff yet personable and Jessica Napier, also very good, didn't appear enough.

Overall, I found the movie too drawn out to hold my interest with a lot of unnecessary clutter. Had they done more cutting and pasting, it could have worked.
