Very surprised by the negative reviews on this. I actually thought it was a really good little Australian slice of life film.
I found a lot of this really rang true, very relatable. It's not exactly a feel good film as it is about a family who have been through a trauma with the death of their adult son. The father is eating himself to death and unhappy at work as a really bad car salesman. The mother is feeling her age and like her life is over. I found her character especially good. Their other son is chasing around the girlfriend of his dead brother, who is meanwhile involved with an older married man - you get the idea! Not a happy group of people.
Recommended if you don't need a movie that is all happy and not true to life. Personally I liked this a lot.

A little bit slow but the story somehow keeps you interested.
