Clubland was the best Australian movie I have seen for a long time. It had everything; comedy aplenty, pathos, people on the edge and couple of cute guys. While it had a high powered happy ending, one suspects that the real problem would remain insoluble till death.
Some may question the appropriateness importing an English actor, Brenda Blethyn but by golly, I doubt an Aussie actor could have matched her performance.
Some might call it a chick flick, but I think it is a movie for everyone. I am surprised at the limited release. I guess Palace Films know what they are doing.
Speaking of famous people, we were going to walk to gorgeous Como cinema, (why is it charging only $11 for admission and $4 for a decent glass of plonk?) but instead with brollies open, we walked to the tram. I nudged R and nodded in the direction of fellow passenger. R could barely recognise her because it has been many years since he saw her on tele. I have seen her around though, so I recognised her straight away. Here is a hint.
'It wasn't me Mrs Davidson'. Lizzie is now dead. The person it was said to is alive and well and travels on the number 8 tram often.
