Storyline

Shot in inner city Sydney, Burke and Wills is about two young men - Burke, a fragile, troubled soul; and Wills, a naive, talkative dreamer - going through a life transition. The two are thrown together in a share house after Wills outstays his welcome in the home of his girlfriend, and a newspaper classified ad leads him to Burke, who has a room to rent. The beginnings of an awkward relationship develop through beer-assisted conversations about cooking, travel, and the importance of satisfactory toilet visits. Common, everyday events lead the two men to open up about their lives. When Burke's much loved grandmother dies, his already fragile state is put under serious strain. Burke financially benefits from his grandmother's death which irrevocably changes his trajectory, shattering his fragile sense of stability and self. Burke's downfall inspires Wills to re-think his life and ultimately leads him to adopt a more conventional path. From this point, Burke and Wills' relationship ... Written by Anonymous

Two new house mates form a strange bond that never really develops into a friendship and will end up taking them to some very dark places.
13 June 2006 | by (Filmink Magazine (Australia)) – See all my reviews

This is the first film made by the young Australian directing-writing-acting team of Matthew Zeremes and Oliver Torr, who are also the founders of the Sydney theatre group Cake. Boasting brilliant moments of awkward realism, sharp, imaginative dialogue and a rich, tightly focused line in dark humour, this low budget wonder announces two very exciting talents to watch. As the lazy but spirited Wills and depressed loner Burke, Zeremes and Torr, respectively, give dynamic performances, while both their script and direction are top notch. And no, it has nothing to do with the famous Australian explorers.
