Our Score
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.


Six school graduates embark on a search for love and happiness, but must learn to cope with the trials of adulthood before they are reunited on the eve of the new millennium. Australian comedy, starring Naomi Watts, Claudia Karvan, Tom Long, Hugo Weaving and Aaron Jeffrey.
