Storyline

Face to Face is adapted from David Williamson's play of the same name which is in turn based on the transcripts from real conflict resolution sessions. The story is about a young scaffold construction worker who is charged with assaulting his boss. By the end of the film, all our assumptions about guilt and blame are turned on their heads. As 10 people sit in a room discussing the turn of events that brought our protagonist to breaking point, twists and surprises reveal that all is not quite as simple as it seems. Michael Rymer directs his screen adaptation of 'Face to Face' (written by Australian playwright David Williamson), as an ensemble piece about 10 very dissimilar Australians bound together by a complex pattern of relationships and shared histories. Hysterically funny and deeply moving, each character's role in the drama peels back another layer as the story digs down to the roots of who these people really are. Written by Michael Rymer

As the plot thickened my interest peaked.
17 May 2012 | by Newton820See all my reviews

I was a little apprehensive at the beginning, as the setting for the film had a lot of potential to be excruciatingly boring if anything was slightly off. I have to say though, they did a great job.

There are flashbacks regarding certain incidents that are important to the plot but for the most part they are in a room reluctantly discussing there involvement in or around a violent work incident.

Sounds boring right? Well in this case not necessarily (depending on your disposition).

The thing that works best here is the steady pace of the plot. We are treated to lots of little twists and bits of information that add a new dimension to the incident in question or open up a new can of worms. It really draws you in.

Its very well done and relevant to many a today's workplace.
