Storyline

Anthea is undergoing a crisis of confidence: overworked, no boyfriend, struggling to find goals - and all her friends are leaving Brisbane. She is tempted to leave herself, but is opposed by her long time best platonic male friend Michael. Michael thinks people who leave Brisbane are copycats who follow the crowd; he is quite happy to stay in Brisbane, he is in a stable job and a stable very low-maintenance sex-with-the-ex relationship with his ex-girlfriend, Stephanie. He is in a rut. Anthea's temptation to leave Brisbane increases with the impending departure of her flatmate Kath. However she then hears that an ex-boyfriend of hers Jake is coming back to Brisbane to live. To Michael's annoyance, she dreams of a great future with him. Michael is thrown out of his comfort zone by starting a new relationship with a girl he meets at work, Simone. Slightly "alternate" and good natured, Simone is totally different from the sorts of girls he normally deals with, and he finds himself in a ... Written by Anonymous

All My Friends Are leaving Brisbane are destined to be stars of tomorrow
19 February 2009 | by (melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

All My Friends Are Leaving Brisbane features talented but unknown actors like Charlotte Gregg, Cindy Nelson, Romany Lee, Gyton Grantley, Ryan Johnson and Matt Zeremes. All these actors each have their moment in the film to shine and show off their talent but the film really belongs to is Charlotte who plays the lead female-Anthea, who is keen to get out of Brisbane. Matt Zeremes who plays Anthea's long time best friend Michael who may or may not want to leave Brisbane does good job as well as the rest of the cast. Gyton Grantley's performance is excellent as there is no sign of his Underbelly alter ego Carl Williams. All in all, this is a fantastic debut from director Louise Alston and writer Stephen Vagg which i'm sure there will be many more projects from this talented duo and it's gorgeous and talented cast.
