What a wonderful gem of a dramedy from our friends down under. It is uncommon to see movies of this type be so original and heartwarming, full of beautifully written characters that you can be sure to believe in. Also, features a career launching performance by the wonderful, Toni Collette. This is a genre that is so refreshing when tackled by other film industries, free of the constraints of the Hollywood cash-grabbing formula. Loved it!
I suppose My only complaint was the use of an ABBA soundtrack at key moments of the film, which seems a little unfair because ABBA's music is a guaranteed cheat in filling you with sheer unbridled joy. Shooting fish in a barrel. This complaint also happened to be one of my favorite things about the film. I'm going to go hug someone now.
