Definately Classy...
13 October 2002 | by ausfilmmakingSee all my reviews

This show has an amazing cast, especially with the addition of Freya Stafford, who I knew would make it since her days on Head Start. She is definately headed for the big screen!

The rest of the cast are quite capable in their roles (especially Brooke Satchwell).

Great script, great performances, great direction... and filmed in Sydney's South! What more could you want!
