There are too many characters but Elton done a worthy job in weaving the storylines together and creating an entertaining comedy.
Rebecca Breeds is the star of Three Summers and the lone reason to endure it. Any other sensible justification seems scarce.
It's a relentlessly well-meaning film and when it's not proselytising, it's working very hard to manufacture enough laughs to make the whole mix palatable. However, the effort shows.
Elton's film is the equivalent of a music festival. Odds are a lot of bands will be great, but there are also bound to be a lot of acts that aren't very good.
The film is worth seeing for Waters, giving a spirited portrayal of a loving father set in his ways and unable to see that times are changing, and Breeds as his lively, talented, worldly wise daughter.
Three Summers feels altogether forced and contrived, with a few nice performances and good intentions ground down by sheer irksomeness.
A feel-good film about racism? Okay.
[Is] the current funding model that determines what big screen, commercial comedies get made in Australia working?
A bad movie like this just provides a convenient argument to stay away from local fare until further notice.
Breezy, inoffensive but ultimately disposable, Three Summers is simply weightless - a film without the gravity or density to have any form of impact.
Keeps its proceedings and protagonists as light and fond as its scenic sights, in an overt effort that's all affable surface.
...uses the microcosm of a WA folk festival to pick at the scabs of Australia's political climate...
