Our take

A riotous snapshot of millennial aimlessness, James Vaughan’s witty comedy has that oh-so-famous Australian sense of wry irony, wrapped in a deceptively sunny, Rohmerian aesthetic. A new side of Sydney is ingeniously captured, as the cityscape warps into an absurdist backdrop for awkward encounters.
