A young couple stumble home after a big night out. Their frisky interlude at a suburban tennis club lands them a role in a far more sinister, supernatural game and their opponents have a distinct home court advantage.

Storyline

Late at night, a drunken couple walk into a fenced grassy area with a tennis court. They start sex games on the umpire's chair, interrupted by the court lights going on and loud sounds coming over the public address system. They realize the gate they entered is now locked. They yell for help over the din of the speakers. She runs for the opposite gate; it's locked as well. He gives her a boost so she can climb the fence. Is something coming?

Nifty little short
30 June 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Entertaining short film that starts out as one kind of story, then surprisingly turns into another, effectively knocking the viewer off-balance. A young couple (Mark Winter and Shelly Lauman) are walking home after a big night on the town. Drunk but still full of energy, the two wander the streets in the early hours of the morning. After resting at a nearby park, the couple come across a tennis court, and see that the gate has been left unlocked. The two enter, but just as they are about to get physical, they discover they are not alone. Director Sean Byrne shifts tone convincingly, displaying complete confidence as the film moves from natural comedy to something much more sinister. Technically the film is first-rate, from the cinematography, editing, and especially the sound design. Byrne has a good eye for knowing what to show, and when to cut. He also gets strong performances from both Winter and Lauman. Only the ending disappoints, which seems illogical given the set-up and reason why the court is left unlocked. I certainly hope 'Advantage' leads to Byrne making a feature film (hopefully 'The Loved Ones' is it).
