A beautiful sexy DJ is forced to run when she stumbles on a bag of cash. Can she keep the money, conquer her demons, AND get the girl? All About E is a road trip, a comedy, and a love story. E, a beautiful, young Arabic Australian DJ seems to have it all. She is headlining at a top Sydney nightclub, has a home with her gay best-friend Matt and a world of women at her feet, but looks can be deceiving. Something is missing. When she and Matt, her husband of convenience, stumble on a bag of cash they are forced to hit the road. Suddenly E finds she has burnt too many bridges, and there is nowhere to run to but outback Australia and into the arms of ex-girlfriend Trish who broke her heart. E has to learn to face up to her past. She has to give her family the chance to accept who she really is and find the courage to live her dreams.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film and have seen it multiple times at various festival screenings. It is entertaining, punchy, refreshing and doesn't conform to the stereotypes forced on many queer films. It does not need to be overly tragic and dark to be taken seriously but still explores the relevant themes of acceptance, tolerance and heart-break. There is humour and multi- culturalism that is often lacking in other films.
For first-time writer/director Louise Wadley it was an ambitious project with so many locations but it's a triumph - the clubs, the country, the city; Australia is portrayed so dynamically. Brett Rogers was the stand-out for me in a difficult, transformative role that had to balance being (essentially) the sole comic relief as well as a self-conscious misfit.
Please watch! Support good Australian cinema!
