Rhys Graham's meaninglessly titled directorial debut, the Canberra-set Galore, is almost pure pastiche.
It's beautifully shot and features top-shelf naturalistic acting, which helps make up for it not being all that insightful about what dwells within a teenager's soul.
Either the sound recording was not up to the mark or the diction of the actresses was woeful, because apart from the overused F-word, very little else that was said was decipherable.
An earnest and technically confident piece of filmmaking but noticeably lacking in stakes
What's distinctive about Galore, however, is not an invocation of the past but the evocation of the present, the here and now: the tactile immediacy and intense tunnel vision of adolescence.
I am not sure who the film was aiming to please. Older audiences might feel detached from this youth culture and younger people will find the film structurally loose, dull and drawn-out like I did.
While I'm not a fan of either [the] style nor the characters and themes on display here, I do recognise the quality of the work from all concerned
Galore may not tell a new story, but the setting and context is well described, drawing us into that arc of teenage angst, when sex and love are confused and risk-taking flies perilously like an out-of-control kite
