Hugh Jackman leads this '90s Australian rom-com as a roadtrain driver with a secret talent for writing romance novels. But when his success threatens his 'man's man' persona, he names his books under the alias of a woman's name - his friend Ruby Vale (Claudia Karvan). It seems like a foolproof plan, until the city publisher comes for a visit...

A marvellous, fresh and endlessly entertaining film, starting with an original concept delivered through an intelligent (and refined over seven years) script.
