Good but left you wondering...
4 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"Second Chance" was hard to get into at first, but then as it progressed it was easier to connect with the characters and gain a sense of progression. The story itself lacked anything significant but was a pleasant telemovie, well directed and well casted. Rhys Muldoon and Tara Morice being the two that stood out with the rest of the cast either too overacted or their characters too unstructured.

The movie didn't have much romance, comedy or drama...all the things one normally looks for in a movie. That being said, it still told a story of the main character Alec - a hotshot lawyer forced to move to the country town of Broome and take up a job there. It then tells of Alec and his connection between various people and in turn their relationships with one another.

All in all this telemovie isn't one of Australia's finest, but had numerous moments that stood out and a number of actors and actresses that deserve commendations.

One line summary -- Good but left you wondering what it was about and left you wanting more explained!
