Movie Reviews

Twisted sleeper, great character portrait

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I am surprised by the other review posted of this film. This was the full length feature debut by Kiwi film maker Allison Maclean who was first brought to attention with her short film "The Kitchen Sink." It is at all times a dark and emotional film, and even unnervingly humorous at some points. It fully delves into the complex and generally tenuous relationships between women. It shows the intense jealousy and rivalry that can co-exist with a fierce loyalty and comraderie all at once between two intelligent and successful women. While I have read reviews of this film that hint at a lesbian relationship between the two adult female leads, I never picked up on it, but did read a strong possiblity of that attraction between Lane (Hardin) and Angela (Bossley). I think the contrast of the good and evil in the established relationship between Lane and Christina, and then getting to see the evolution of both those elements through the development of the almost perverse friendship between Lane and Angela is fascinating. This film is a beautiful portrait of the conflicted relationships that exist between women in our modern society and the fact that there is a male sexual relationship thrown in is almost secondary and not comepletely necessary for the ultimate storyline. The bleak and harsh New Zealand back-drop is a perfect setting for this story as well. I own this film personally and can without a doubt recommend this for at least a pre-purchase veiwing. Also of note: Director Allison Maclean directed the first 2 episodes of HBO's Sex and the City"
