Movie Info

Feeling as if her life has grown stagnant after all of her friends jump town in search of greener pastures elsewhere, an aimless office worker is urged by a platonic male friend to carve her own path in life and not simply go with the flow like a dead fish. Anthea (Charlotte Gregg) has sat idly by as all of her friends and acquaintances packed their bags in hopes of finding meaning in the big city. While there's little evidence that any of them really have achieved all of their wildest dreams, dejected twenty-something Anthea, too is beginning to consider the prospect of relocating if for no other reason than to escape the daily drone of her miserable office job. Anthea's longtime friend Michael (Matt Zeremes) is stuck in his own rut, and is currently doing his best to convince her to stick around the sleepy eastern Australia town. To this point the relationship between Anthea and Michael has been strictly platonic, but as Anthea starts to take the prospect of relocating increasingly serious it begins to appear as if Michael has not been completely honest about his feelings for his downcast friend. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

There's a real energy and sense of place about this involving romantic comedy in which character takes centre stage. The debut feature for director Louise Alston, the film is an exploration of relationships, and works extremely well.

Audience Reviews for All My Friends Are Leaving Brisbane

One of the better Australian films I have seen lately. I don't think it will be on anyone's list to watch over and over, but to see once, was pretty good. Fairly unknown cast do a good job here in what is pretty much a chick flick with a bit of quirkiness. I think being an Australian film I could find most of the characters here pretty relatable and they rang true.
I think most of us can relate to being a twenty something and wanting to run away overseas where something might actually happen! (Although in my case I went through that one in my teens - not that i ever did!).
