Storyline

Mired in debt, Ronnie (Emily Taheny) is a struggling Adelaide restaurateur looking after her elderly mother and living with good-hearted boyfriend Jeff (Luke McKenzie). Five years ago, while catering on a film set in Australia, she had an intense affair with British movie star, Henry (Eddie Izzard). Despite wild declarations of love, as the movie wrapped so did the relationship, crushing Ronnie's heart. When Henry's French girlfriend Sophie (Vanessa Guide) calls to say they will be in Adelaide on a promotional tour Jeff excitedly agrees to meet up and unwittingly creates the perfect opportunity for Henry to seduce Ronnie all over again. 'The Flip Side' taps into the intricacies of relationships, ambition, and love when mixed with a bloody good shiraz. Written by Cf

Trivia

Human dynamics and the clashing of cultural backgrounds inspired writer-director Marion Pilowsky as she developed her script with co-writer and life partner Lee Sellars, and what in turn drew in her stellar producing team of Sue Murray and David Willing, and the international cast led by acclaimed British comedian and actor Eddie Izzard and Australian comic Emily Taheny.

A warm, charming, fun experience
6 September 2018 | by adelehannSee all my reviews

I chuckled all the way through this film and enjoyed spending time with the characters. It looks great and it's a buzz seeing the South Australian locations looking so fresh. I think this will appeal to women more than men and I wonder if some of the negative reviews were by men as the film skewers male foibles and vanities rather nicely. On reflection I'd say it's a sort of comedy of manners for suburban Australia.
