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

Definitely fit for cinema release
9 September 2018 | by ron-newboldSee all my reviews

Set and filmed entirely in Adelaide and its surrounds, this film offers many moments of recognition for anyone who lives in or has lived in South Australia. Not a particularly memorable film but not cringingly awful either. Direction and acting are competent enough and there is a human story here that is told with a certain wry humour but with few LOL moments. (A fake boomerang that turns out to be anything but is one, and Henry's girlfriend Sophie is a hoot.) Can' t agree with the newspaper critic who thought the film should only have lasted 50-60 minutes and that it was padded with unnecessary scenes. The bowling alley scene, for example, was part of things going ever more pear-shaped for a financially stressed Ronnie, and the Q and A scene brought out what a poseur and phoney Henry was.
