OK Aussie slice of life comedy
16 August 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

May I suggest you see this movie with an open mind and few expectations. In a genre lacking lately for home grown big screen product, Subdivision try's hard to be amusing in every sense of the word. The family bond and power of friendships are observed in a small community, a matter of heart Australian style. Based around a building work site in sunny North Queensland, it's all about the life, loves and shenanigans of the working class man. A little bit of home truths are thrown in for good measure which is appropriate for the current economic climate. There is the great sport of rugby league featured too, which is a rarity in movies indeed. Young Ashley Bradham wrote the screenplay, with his mother, off personal experiences, he also stars and has a good presence about him. Veteran Gary Sweet is good as Digger, old school hard nut builder who really needs to lighten up before a sooner rather than later mid-life crisis. The one and only Bruce Spence (Matrix, Stork) is underused but has fun opposite equally funny Steve Bisley. The amazing Brooke Satchwell rounds out the likable cast and I don't just mean looking gorgeous in a pair of short shorts. As the love interest and big city developer, she has adds much needed pizazz. Funny at times, enjoyable but not memorable, a good debut from star in the making, Ash Bradham.
