In every way a good film
1 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Experience of director/writer John Dulgan shows in this excellently crafted film. Its a nice story driven movie with lots of charm, and charming performance by Nammie Le.

Linh (Nammie Le) is a college student, but her family is about to lose their home, and to help them she takes up a job with the escort service. She has an American art smuggler client who wants to go steady with her, as well as one of her school mate. As part of business, she's asked to go to a party which includes members of her school mates to "do it" with one of them. She also has steady clients, that includes Japanese business man, and afore mentioned art dealer. The story revolves around Linh trying to balance her "professional" life, with her life as a student, a family member, and with her love interest. As the story progress, all of her relationships turns in a surprising way with each of them.

The detail director John Durgan has put into this movie is phenomenal. It reminds me of movies made by Hirokazu Koreeda who is another internationally recognized director in this respect. The communication skills, and ability to tell compelling story of Durgan with his audience is superb. Movie is shot at various locations around Sydney, and the scenery is beautiful.

Nammie Le who's real age is 33 at the time when this movie was shot will shock you as she looks 20 in earnest.

All the actors in this movie must have been hand picked by Durgan as each puts in a superb performance.

One of the best independent movie to come out of Australia or anywhere, this movie is highly recommended for viewing.
