No need to say too much about this film except that it is another almost hyper-realistic Melbourne western suburbs mood piece and a pre-cursor to the comparable Romper Stomper and Metal Skin. If you liked those two and you can chase up a copy of Lover boy then it is well worth the watch. I saw it on SBS, probably the only station that would show it as they manage to slip in the c* word a few times :-)
Noah Taylor is in fine early form as the awkward but somehow more sophisticated than his peers teenage misfit.
