Lisa Dean Ryan,
We are taken to a country house, at the beginning of the film, where Ellie, whose family owns the property, is making preparations to receive her week-end guests. They are all young people that have known each other for some time and who seem to like one another, in their own peculiar way. What was to be a quiet time in the country, turns out to be an occasion where truths about each one in the group sees the others, and themselves.
"Seven and a Match" marks the cinema debut of Derek Simonds, who also wrote the screen play. The film has an intensity that involves the viewer from the start. We care for these characters as we watch them in the intimate setting where friendships will be put to a test and some hidden truths about each one of these friends will be revealed.
The ensemble cast gathered for the film has a youthful appeal. Best of all is Tina Holmes, whose Ellie, is one of the best things this young actress has done in her career. Eion Bailey, is the callous Sid, who plays with Peter's feelings. Adam Scott does good work as Peter, a young gay man who realizes what Sid is doing to his head. Petra Wright is also an asset in the film with her take on Blair, the apparently superficial girl who betrays Matthew without realizing the consequences of her actions. Heather Donahue is also good as Whit, the girl that seems to have it all, yet she envies Blair's beauty.
"Match and a Seven" will not disappoint. One can identify with the characters and what they are doing to each other.
