Movie Info

After his Oscar-winning performance in Shine, Geoffrey Rush returned to the screen in this Australian comedy as a power-crazed politician, federal treasurer Godfrey Usher. Scientist Richard Shorkinghorn (David Wenham) needs cash to continue his research into age reversal. Applying for a grant, he's invited by philanthropic Grace Michael (Heather Mitchell) to her country estate, where he discovers his former lover and past assistant Kate Haslett (Francis O'Connor) has an identical project and grant request. Grace, they learn, is married to Godfrey Usher, given to frivolity and alcohol. Further, their weekend takes a devilish turn and really heats up after they discover that Grace and Godfrey are both Satanists. Some three years later, Usher is installed as the prime minister of Australia. Director Peter Duncan (Children of the Revolution) appears in a cameo as a defense attorney.more

Faramir gets close-a-mir.

New Times

Balances itself precariously between the ridiculous and the sublime.

Apollo Guide

A preposterous, asinine horror movie (also, in more ways than one) that is about as subtle as a freight train crashing into your house.
