almost adults

Almost Adults feels like a bunch of well-meaning friends got together to make a frothy film, but unfortunately it's really not very good. It feels tremendously dated, wooden, and the stereotypes abound. It's all been done before, more successfully, back in the early 90's, and really didn't need to be done again.

Watching this movie was like being at a seedy party where you don’t know anyone, nobody will talk to you, everyone is drunk or on drugs, and you just can’t wait to leave. It doesn’t matter that it looked beautiful and that the director was obviously telling an intensely personal story. She was telling it for herself, and leaving us out of it.

Webisodes: It’s exciting to see creative, original content not only being made on a shoestring, but utilising new forms of delivery that go outside the traditional in order to reach an audience. To top it off, this series is deliciously addictive, must-see lesbian drama. I'm so happy to see something from the streets of Sydney reach bigger and broader audiences. Just find it, settle in, and see it. You won't be sorry.

There are almost no words to describe what a missed opportunity this was. With zero chemistry between the leads and a script that wasted the talents of everyone involved, this film does no justice to something that is such a resonating subject in our community right now. I felt cheated investing the time and effort getting to know these characters at all.

Classic: A road movie with a twist, this underrated Hollywood classic will have you weeping by the end, and with good reason. These three actresses amp the emotion up to critical levels, but somehow avoid being sickly and melodramatic. A pitch perfect dramedy that stands the test of time.

More well-meaning than well-executed, this 8-hour mini series will resonate strongly with those of us living and breathing the fight every day, but is it strong enough to move the unconverted? I'm unconvinced. There are enough huge moments here to keep most viewers hanging in there, and it pulls relentlessly at the heartstrings.
