It had lots of heart and plenty of laughs.
30 October 2017 | by dbleakneySee all my reviews

Ben Elton has done a terrific job of capturing everyday Australians; the good and the bad. This movie had so many of laughs along with serious moments. I find that some movies depend on big names to carry it but this is just not the case with Three Summers. I wonder how many takes they had for some of the scenes with Magda Szubanski. Her dialog was hilarious and she did it with a straight face but I don't know how. Peter Rowsthorn did the same scene 3 times in the movie and it just got funnier and funnier. Michael Caton did such a credible job of the older bigoted Australian that all I could see was my father-in-law until the turnaround at the end. I could go on and on but I don't want to spoil it. Go see it for yourself. There's something for everyone; young and old. I haven't even mentioned the music. Go see it for yourself. I'm getting the DVD when it comes out. I just loved it. It's going to be a classic, like The Dish.
