Not Bad at all.
3 August 2002 | by milkboy87See all my reviews

Weekend of Shadows isn't a bad little Australian film at all. The acting is rather well done and the setting isn't bad either. The Best part of this film for me was seeing the Macclesfeild hotel shown in the film, where i have lived for about 3 years. This is a film that wont put you to sleep, like some other Australian films, the story is glued together and will make you have feelings for some of the characters.
