Great cast, script and direction
5 April 2012 | by psinclair-1See all my reviews

Don't you just love it when you're searching for some escapism and you accidentally come across a movie that you've never heard of and are impressed by it from start to finish. This movie is classy because it takes an old, predictable story line but makes you want to keep watching simply because of the quality of the film making. The acting is fantastic. The entire cast are totally believable (where are all these brilliant Aussie actors hiding?)The tension and suspense in the direction is enthralling. The dialogue is underplayed and the ominous cool of modern urban multiculturalism is portrayed with artistry. Great cast, script and especially insightful direction. Loved it!
