Frances O’Connor was never more charming than in Cherie Nowlan’s debut romantic comedy, with Richard Roxburgh and Cate Blanchett.
"The sentiments expressed in this romantic comedy make me think of the reflective Peggy Lee song, Is That All There Is. It’s that realisation that perhaps life doesn’t dish out what we wish for - or think we wish for. But as we buckle up for this film’s emotional journey, it is an uplifting experience. Nowlan’s debut film is fresh, insightful, funny and charming. Alexandra Long’s script is witty and keenly observant; the lead performances strong, with firmly established characters.” – Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
