A great little fork-in-the-road film..
6 March 2018 | by SmackCheeksSee all my reviews

I love these 70's Australian revival movies. Director Chris Noonan has woven a coherent tale with just the right amount of back story and character development needed to get to the climactic point without wasting one second of the 77 minute movie length. Cass is a rare movie to find and I wonder why because I am impressed and like Cass.. a lot. It has a similar charm and character sympathy though less complicated as John Duigan's masterpiece 'The Year My Voice Broke' which puts it in great company. But, like many of the Aussie new wave movies, distribution was very often poor which accounts for the empty seats I guess.

Cass has a life changing experience but doesn't know it until she returns home. She begins to see the influences in her life as selfish manipulators and struggles to find her place. One day she meets a couple of free spirited individuals living a rural lifestyle in suburbia who, in there own way, give Cass the spirit she needs to resolve her issues and move down the fork in her road... great stuff.
