Movie Info

Garth Maxwell directed this pansexual drama that intertwines the stories of three very different love affairs. Katie Keen (Rena Owen) returns to New Zealand with her one-woman show, moving in with her homosexual friend Stephen (Simon Prast). Meanwhile, Stephen is in love with lyricist Mark (Dean O'Gorman), and aspiring punk rockers Sally (Sophia Hawthorne) and Fig (Nancy Brunning) become involved with one another. This psychological ping-ponging soon results in cries, whispers and recriminations. Shown at the 1998 Toronto Film Festival.

Audience Reviews for When Love Comes

Very typically New Zealand. It was genuinely enjoyable. The sountrack was fantastic, the songs are really well balanced and were precisely chosen for the different scenes, also established the setting clearly. The acting was very raw and natural like, Rena Owen proved her worth once again. The plot was somewhat cliched but stil maintained some interesting little lines that surprised viewers.

An interesting movie with a great story plot that follows a group of friends. Katie, Eddie, Stephen, Fig, and Sally. Each person having a certain desire, or need, to be fulfilled from their ones. Great cast- Rena Owen, Dean O'Gorman, Simon Prast, Sophie Hawthorne, and Simon Westaway. Worthy!
