Storyline

This film hypothesizes that someday in the future, Great Britain will be racked by a great civil war with its ancillary countries that are under the regime's thumb and that females will be recruited into special units to fight the war. The film examines the women who are combatants in one of these units. However, the film concentrates mostly on the emotional under-pinnings of these women rather than any war experiences. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Where they stoned
23 January 2005 | by jonasjobbarSee all my reviews

This was just weird Maybe something got wrong when they transformed it from play to manuscript for this didn't work at all. Everybody just

acts weird, and I am not sure if it was the characters

that were stoned or the script writer/director...

crap 2/10

watched it once, giving away the DVD...

and Guy Pearce: What is he trying to do? A nerve damaged weirdo or a drug addict?

want 10 lines 10 lines of text I am singing in the rain just singing in the rain what do you want to use these crappy rules for ?

Short comments should be OK too, especially for crappy movies
