Lovers Ray and Carla plan to burn down her house at Christmas, to run off with her husband's drug money. Ray has a side scheme going too, taking kickbacks on the love hotel project whose construction he's managing. The suburban Aussie marrieds live across a river from each other, the much older, domesticated Ray in an upper middle-class neighborhood, Carla on the wrong side of the water. The cheaters will lure their families to the same Christmas picnic celebration, to provide alibis while still being able to sneak off and chat about the arson. Carla's tow-truck owner hubby, Smithy, is a fearsome tough to cross, so will the philanderers' holiday gifts come through, or explode in their lying faces? —David Stevens
The best Australian film of 2008
The Square co-written by Matthew Dabney and Joel Edgerton, directed by Nash Edgerton and produced by Louise Smith is brilliant and stylish. Along with the script and directing, the casting of unknowns like David Roberts (Ray), Claire Van Der Boom (Carla) and Hanna Mangan Lawrence work well with known actors like Joel Edgerton (Billy), Anthony Hayes (Smithy) and Damon Herriman (Eddie). This film deserves to do well so do go and see this and not just to "support it" but it really is a great film, story and the acting is brilliant which i think all the actors have a big future in this industry. I look forward to see what Nash and Joel do next, again this film is brilliant!!!
