Storyline

Centre Place is a sophisticated romantic drama featuring Melbourne's style, fashion and culture. Set in the very European boutiques, cafes and bars of Melbourne's inner lane-ways the film focuses on the highs and lows of aspiring artist Lizzie Baxter. Lizzie is a lost soul living in denial. At 28, she would prefer to stay in a shallow relationship than take charge of her own life. This is Lizzie's unique story but also the story of an entire generation; living in limbo and not ready to grow up. Desperate for love to be the answer to her problems, Lizzie ignores the truth about her relationship and herself. However, when Simon, her "perfectly rich and perfectly perfect" boyfriend, dumps her on the eve of their departure to Paris, Lizzie's life goes into a tail spin. Her illusions begin to unravel when her estranged father and an old flame re enter her life, forcing her to confront her fears. In the end, Lizzie realizes that she needs to find herself before she is able to find love. ... Written by Anonymous

Easy watching Melbourne chick flick
21 August 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Centre Place is a romantic drama set in Melbourne, about a young women finding out the difference between real love and the idea of love. The protagonist, Lizzie Houghton, is played by Julia Markovski, with her love interest Jamesn Ballintyne, played by Sullivan Stapleton. Their acting is a credit to the film and makes up for the lack of talent that follows. The Sub plots seem pointless and don't really go anywhere, IE the scenes with her father, also with her boss, leaving you wondering in the point of those characters...however if you approach this film with the mind set that its just a few weeks in the life of Lizzie, and don't ask questions or set expectations too high, it is quite enjoyable.
