    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.

    Watchable drama about a singer on the comeback and her eclectic circle of friends. I didnt quite buy into her pathos thinking instead that she was rather dismal in just feeling sorry for herself.

    The best part of this movie was the ending & I mean that in a metaphorical sense...

    Between getting trashed, tripping, blowing guys off and writing songs, Mark (Dean O'Gorman) falls for Stephen (Simon Prast). Fig and Sally put perform Marks songs between casual sex with anyone and everyone. Katie (Rena Owen) is a few-hit wonder who hit rock-bottom in L.A and returns to New Zealand to patch her life backtogether. Stephen, Mark and Katie branch out for a slumber party at a beach house of their better days. Fig and Sally arrive, and not long after Eddie arrives also (Katies American guy). Mark stops running away from Stephens love, Katie and Eddie get engaged and Fig and Sally ... have sex?

    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!

    one of the most refreshing non-hollywood type movies from new zealand, about things in life, finding yourself after the peak of your career, after your best years seem to be over.

    A fantastic film about how people love and fall in love with each other.
