Storyline

In the first Australian feature film to showcase Auslan (Australian sign language), writer/director Davo Hardy, plays a sensitive writer named Reuben, who grapples with a speech impediment as his profoundly deaf boyfriend Derek (played by Joshua Sealy), provides strategies to restore his confidence. Upon finding the courage to submit an autobiographical screenplay to his favorite actor (played by Paul Mercurio), this new industry mentor betrays Reuben and claims the ideas as his own. Reuben must use his new-found assertion to proactively find catharsis and personal justice. Written by IMDb

Trivia

The scene between Courtney and Myles on the couch, as they plan for their future, was completely ad-libbed, aside from direction to hit two key story beats (that Derek's deafness is hereditary and Courtney is conflicted about his special needs). The scene was shot three times, the wide and the two close-ups, each time delivered a little differently. See more »
