Storyline

It's over a year since Anna split with John and life is only getting harder. She isn't landing auditions and the pressure from family to make it work or call it quits is ever increasing. Dreading a future as uncertain as the present Anna travels to Paris and to the home of her best friend Jean. Life for Jean seems stable. He's given up acting for a pay cheque and is settling down with his French partner Philippe. The timing of Anna's arrival isn't great however; Philippe's mother is dying and it's taking its toll on them both. Thankful for the easy excuse to escape, Jean dedicates his time and attention to Anna who herself is devoted to another task entirely. Written by Sophie Mathisen

who can't relate to a bit of drama?!
9 November 2015 | by libertykSee all my reviews

Drama is a film to catch when you get the chance! To be honest, I only decided to check it out because I saw Nicole da Silva's name in the credits (she is incredible in Wentworth), but it turns out the clever writing, witty dialogue, and affecting story lines were what made me fall in love with this film.

Drama is a tightly written and superbly acted tale of expectation and disappointment; of friendship, love, and hard truths; and of knowing when to give it your all and when to walk away. The small cast of imperfect yet endearing characters remind us that we're not the only ones blundering through our careers, our friendships, and our relationships...and even when we think we've botched things for good, there's always tomorrow.

What an outstanding debut from a promising young writer/director!
