Movie Info

At 17, love is as big as life is immense. It's a sweltering summer before the final year of school and Billie and Laura share every secret except for Billie's biggest secret - she's crazy in love and sleeping with Laura's boyfriend Danny. When Billie's social worker mum takes in Isaac, a troubled teenager looking to get his life straight, the delicate balance of the three friends' lives is disrupted. As bushfires threaten the edge of their suburbs and they immerse themselves in the swirl of parties, possible love and the intensity of sex and desire, the world of the four teenagers is changed forever as their secrets are revealed and their lives, friendships and loves are thrown into chaos.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.
