The picture was nominated for seven Australian Film Institute (AFI) Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Costume Design, Best Editing and Best Cinematography but winning two - for Best Actor (John Waters) and Best Supporting Actor (Kim Gyngell). See more »
When the leading actor is totally un-convincing, then any movie has huge problems. John Waters is just plain wooden as successful writer Tom Garfield. The boring story plods along....with no surprises along the tortuous way. The use of music is almost unbelievably awful. The script is terrible. The B grade Australian actors try....but television is where they belong. It feels like a 1975 film, and I was amazed to find out it was made in 1988. SO---Who should watch this trash ?? Young actors, directors, writers etc. etc. etc. They should see how bad a movie can be, and try hard not to forget it. I am completely sure John Waters never watches this...and never speaks about it
