Storyline

Living in suburban Sydney, Pete and Jerry aren't just cousins, they're best friends. Jerry falls in love and starts a relationship with Cheryl, though he knows Pete likes her too. Pete, a small-time drug dealer, doesn't understand why Jerry suddenly wants to settle down and make plans (he gets a job at a fast-food place and works for a pittance). Then Pete has to lie low with his dealing for a while because the police are tailing him and Jerry gets him a job at the chicken restaurant. But Pete makes trouble and walks out, losing Jerry his job as well. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Dark, violent and depressing
29 December 2012 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of Australian cinema which often produces low budget but good drama. This is by no means the best it has to offer but is worth a viewing.

The film centres on a small group of friends who appear to be heading toward oblivion. I don't know if the film realistically portrays young Australians realistically or not (probably not) but none of the characters are particularly appealing. I didn't empathise with any of the characters and therefore didn't care what happened to them. However maybe this was the point of the film, so I wouldn't say that was a negative.

Australia has produced some fine actors and while the acting in this is adequate no-one really stands out except maybe for Gillian Alexy.

The film is almost continually dark, violent and depressing along the lines of Requiem for a Dream, so will not appeal to a broad range of people. My wife pretty much hated it. However there were enough memorable scenes to keep my interest and make this worth watching.
