Marking Time (2003)
An Australian "Romeo and Juliet" for modern times
We like to think of ourselves as serious movie 'buffs', but this locally-made film blew us away with its excellent script, genuinely moving acting, and believably important storyline. Important especially in this day of growing suspicion of our Muslim neighbours. Well done Australia (again) and especially well done to young Abe Forsythe who carried off a difficult role with intermittent asides to the camera, with panache. Geoff Morrell as the voice of reason is always reliable, (and got the best lines!) and the rest of the cast provided a nice mix of characters recognisable to most Aussies. The theme is topical yet timeless (in the manner of Shakespeare's original script), but never proselytises or feels weighty. We viewed this over four episodes, and were looking forward each week to being thoroughly entertained.
