Storyline

After the birth of two children Simon's (Joel Edgerton) marriage to Pam (Danielle Cormack) is becoming a bore in which the only climactic feelings he has involve an unfortunate new tendency for premature ejaculation. He develops an interest in another young mother, Katrien (Rhona Mitra), whose husband Klaus has been cheating on her. The world of young married parents in Wellington is fast leading to a whole new breed of men: the men of 'Separation City'. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

I loved this film
9 August 2009 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

At last a New Zealand film about real people in real situations. This film is written by Tom Scott a political journalist and one of New Zealand's best loved satirical cartoonists. His own real life experiences are evident throughout the film as the characters move from one hilarious situation to another. Set mainly in Wellington, New Zealand's capital and home of parliament, it shows the beauty of Wellington and the real New Zealand character. The actors are very believable and so funny that I was laughing out loud in the theater. My only complaint was that it wasn't longer. This is a great film about friends and the frailty of familiarity. It has great insight and will touch all who see it. My suggestion. Just get out and see it.
