Quotes

Jacq: [Looking at the pesto Dan just made] Is that black pepper?
[Takes a bite out of the pesto on a biscuit]
Dan: What do you think?
Jacq: It's crunchy.
Dan: The biscuit?
Jacq: No, it's like a 'grinding' sort of crunchy? Um, did you wash the basil before you used it?
Dan: [Looking confused] Was I supposed to?
Jacq: Um, I don't know how to say this but I think your pesto might have actual soil.

Hip, sexy feel good comedy /drama
26 August 2006 | by (melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I decided to go and catch one of the advanced screenings before it comes out on Thursday and i liked what i saw.

Daniel Lapaine did a brilliant job at writing the screenplay and directing, very faithful to the book and the way he put the fish tank scene when Dan and Naomi met just like Romeo and Juliet was great too.

(Possible spoiler, i know.) The casting Richard Wilson, Robin McLeavy, Emma Lung, Nick Donaldson and Victoria Thaine were great.

They each played their roles just perfectly the way i imagined in the book. I think they all have a good future in this business and i hope to see them all in many other great films. Local or overseas.
