Movie Info

In this Australian comedy, adapted by Louis Nowra from his own play and updated from a '70s to a '90s setting, a Sydney slacker gets the chance to stage an opera, but his cast is assembled from the ranks of the mentally ill. After a long stretch sponging off his law-student girlfriend Lucy (Rachel Griffiths), college dropout Lewis (Ben Mendelsohn) fakes his way into a job doing occupational therapy with a group of asylum inmates. Although his original assignment is to stage a variety show,

Audience Reviews for Cosi

A really heartfelt film with a lot of really strong performances and some really good writing. It has its weaker acting, too, and contains its fair share of cliches, but it's still a really enjoyable movie that hits a lot of themes and spectrums.

    1. Lewis: As you and I know, Roy, there's not a lot of real love out there. But the great thing about being in Cosi is being able to believe for just two hours that real love between people is possible.

    1. Nick: Madmen are normal people--its just that they've ended up in asylums.
