Storyline

How long does it take before the abnormal seems normal? Death, love and family values are all up for re-negotiation in this dark and unusual black comedy about a girl trying to start a new life for herself after the loss of her mother.

Seventeen-year old Claudia (EMMA LUNG) lives in a world of no job, no school, no money, indoor aviary and crazy territorial fights with her younger sister Penny (EMILY BROWNING). Since her mothers death the year before Penny wont go to school and her father Rex (ROBERT MORGAN) simply wont get off the couch.

When two children are dumped on the family, Claudia moves into her mothers abandoned car in the driveway. She plans to fix it and take off to tropical Queensland thats if she can side step the Christian do-gooders and avoid falling in love with the cute Kleptomaniac (DAVID HOFLIN) who works at the local Supermarket.

Claudias plans are further interrupted when the two little kids accidentally kill a favourite pet, Rex sinks further into depression, and ...

Great film!
26 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was privileged to see this at LA Film Festival yesterday and was really impressed. It's both an exploration of how a family survives and recovers in the wake of a loss, and how a teen who's got no choice but to make her own decisions gains her own sensibilities and independence as a human being. Dealing with an apathetic father who appears to have given up and a hostile sister who's not mature enough to be without guidance, she finds a way to come to terms with the family tragedy and her own sense of loss, and finds her strength and, in doing so, provides a focus for healing. The director's creativity was constrained by the industry to produce a film of 50 minutes and did a remarkable job of exploring the circumstances and personalities involved with surprising depth. All the actors did a great job of portraying their characters; they were believable and it was possible to be empathetic even if they weren't the most likable groups of people you could meet. I rated it a 5 out of 5 in the audience survey and look forward to seeing it again.
