An episodic romantic comedy from Australia about a year in the love lives of six men and women. Perceptive and engaging, Emma-Kate Croghan's follow-up to Love and Other Catastrophes features a trio of delightful performances from career girl Claudia Karvan, sweet but insecure Naomi Watts and quirky Alice Garner. The male characters are incredibly dull and self-absorbed in comparison. The film loses its perky momentum after a cracking first half, culminating in a matchmaking climax that's way too convenient. Luckily, the infectious energy - backed by a wonderful dance soundtrack - papers over most of the cracks in the script.

Plot Summary
