Movie Info

A family reunion stirs up some painful memories for a young man in this drama from Australia. Elliot Christie (Daniel Frederiksen) is a wealthy and respected self-made businessman who lives and works in Sydney. Elliot is returning home to Adelaide for the first time in ten years to attending the christening of his nephew. While this might seem like a happy occasion, Elliot isn't looking forward to seeing his family -- his father Ross (Geoff Morrell) is an angry and abusive man with a serious drinking problem, and his brother Brett (Tom Budge) has sunk into a crippling depression since his career as an athlete came to and end. Elliot left home in order to make something of himself, but while he's come back at the request of Diane (Lucy Bell), his late mother's sister, the familial conflicts he left behind are still there, and Elliot still has plenty of issues with his father and brother. Ten Empty was the first directorial credit for actor Anthony Hayes. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Ten Empty is an exhausting film. But it doesn't offer anything back.

It's strong meat - or it would be if the Christies looked and behaved like a family instead of a disparate group of actors brought together in the expectation that some miracle will arise to produce riveting drama.

Performances are great, but they are restrained by the writing. Consequently the film ends up more like a workshop for actors than a satisfying drama for audiences. I am not even sure who those audiences are...
