  • BBC

    Lapses in judgement occasionally jar - like the habit of playing middle of the road ballads over key scenes - but the central romance is touching enough to lock us in while bringing out the moral of this story. Full Review

  • I watched the movie in a kind of fascination. It is poetic and unforgiving, romantic and stark. Full Review

  • A dreamy but tough ensemble indie that delivers its existential angst with a straight-up Aussie drawl. Full Review

  • Sarah Watt's film follows a group of disparate and desperate characters over the course of one of the most depressing weekends in movie history. Full Review

  • While [director Sarah] Watt begins to offer an interesting study in paranoia, tinged with some good comic moments, her multi-stranded plot and last-minute recourse to romance ultimately lost the interest of this viewer. Full Review
