The novelty of this Australian working class comedy of manners is that sexual orientation is not a probelm. Father and gay son (nicely played by Russell Crowe) enjoy the kind of warm, amiable relationship thast's unheard of and unseen in American films
A second look reveals everything wrong with the movie, but on first pass, it's well-performed and enjoyably crafted.
An excellent Aussie effort with ripper performances from Crowe and Thompson
Effective translation of a theatre piece. Russell Crowe's best performance.
Plumbs the depths of a loyal and loving relationship between a father and son.
