When Jimmy is catching the train home, Jimmy is riding in a Type K train used by City Rail (at the time) for Sydney suburban rail services, but when we cut outside to The Man watching Jimmy go, it shows a Type V train, used for NSW inter-urban services. See more »

Lets hope director Jordan has more tales up his sleeve to tell.
Jordan takes us into the seedy crime side of Sydney, Australia, following the desperate attempt of nineteen year old Jimmy, (Heath Ledger), who bundles a job for a local gangster and needs to make amend before they get to him. The gangsters, (led by Bryan Brown), are a menacing bunch with a humorous streak in them. That's what makes the film work, because we always view gangsters as a rough bunch out to screw you badly. But this mob tickle your funny bone as well. A clever structured script by Jordan has characters crossing paths and getting caught in the web plot.
