Judy Davis as a young, drug-addicted prostitute who focuses her romantic dreams of redemption on a former 60s radical (Bryan Brown), now married and the owner of a bookstore. John Duigan's film was unusual in 80s Australian cinema for its contemporary setting, jaded attitudes, and willingness to engage morally complex situations, yet the film is never gripping, perhaps because it lacks the clarity of structure needed to give a perspective on the characters' confusions. Brown is searching for his past, Davis for a future; neither succeeds in comprehending the present. Duigan displays a definite authorial presence in a national cinema woefully devoid of such (1981).
