    When will the Australian Film Commission wake up and recognise scripts that will not make money for the industry?. Here's yet another Aust movie project that proves this point - so many feature trashy themes involving incest, paedophilia or sordid adultery. This one tries to incorporate them all - then suggests a compromise that simply doesn't hold up. It basically features the life of a foulmouthed topless bar worker, and unmarried mother, and her teenage daughter - as they move through one challenge to the next. One suspect scene has the daughter willing to sleep with a ‘friend' even though they both think they are brother and sister! The South Australian coastal locations are good looking but all too familiar within other local movies (with similar themes). The performers all work hard but the script lets them down. The whole thing tries too hard to be arty but with little quality substance - it just ends up like so many others that people just rarely go out to see. Offered some promise but ultimately led to very little.

    I enjoyed the movie, Susie always great, Victoria Thane fantastic, loved her use of the old Pentax film camera as part of her search into the past. Better than most box office hits. Location Robe SA great.

    had a Jindabyne feel to it but it was nowhere near as good. Kind of boring acutally.

    beautifully filmmed but i wish i have not wasted any money on seeign it. nothing special in the film because you can always guess what will happen next. and i dun know where the wish is. and what the mother(susan) doing in the film is not making any sense. so i think the policeman is right about that it's all susan's fault.

    Beautiful story of self identity. Slow, melodic, and very touching. Good script, backed by solid acting and magnificent cinematography.

    Solid Aussie movie, a decent mystery drama with an intriguing enough plot to keep me watching. A South Australian girl tries to unravel the mystery of just who her father is, while playing matchmaker for her mum.
