Pretty bad but great location!
9 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

The movie was pretty lame, but what a nice spot to film! The house in the movie where Ellie goes to meet Margo for the first time is a holiday house that my Pa built in the 50's. Its down the south coast at Durras. My nana and pa have fond memories of the crew and actors coming to shoot. They were allowed to stay and watch filming.

Since i have been going to South Durras on holidays my entire life (25 years), I have to agree with Ellie on the conservation side of things. I really feel sad at the thought of Durras being over developed. Its such a lovely, quiet 'place at the coast'.

OK, so the movie isn't great, but it has sentimental value for me and my family.
