"...desperate to be shocking..."
Aussie co-writer/co-producer/director Jon Hewitt's latest is as luridly silly as his Acolytes and as grungy as his Redball, but what distinguishes this Kings Cross drama is its ridiculous sex content and brazen absurdity.
After a pre-credits sequence where sex worker Holly Rowe (Viva Bianca) has it off with a nude dude for the voyeuristic pleasure of what looks like a Seniors knitting club, we're then introduced to 17 year old runaway Shay Ryan (Hanna Mangan Lawrence), who remains gorgeously clean despite sleeping rough, servicing a sleazy old git, getting smacked up and eating McDonald's over many days in the Cross. Improbable chance unites these women, with Holly thinking stranger Shay perfect for a threesome, but this ends badly, leading to lots of running around, nutty plot twists, more rooting and wildly gratuitous nudity, and Shay's friendship with a taxi driver (Eamon Farren), who fancies himself a magician and keeps a cute bunny in a box for no other reason than to show that he isn't another freak who wants to slobber all over her.
Again co-written by Hewitt's missus Belinda McClory, this is desperate to be shocking, and yet, while Bianca and Lawrence try to provide heart, it's nevertheless potentially an overheated, po-faced sex comedy that could just provide big laughs, if you're in the right, randy mood.
Special features include Behind the scenes, US trailer, Audio commentary with director Jon Hewitt plus original soundtrack.
