Lantana: a noxious and troublesome weed with dense and spiky undergrowth, sometimes cultivated for its colorful, aromatic flowers (film website). Like the plant, this film is a thicket: lovely and sweet smelling on its surface, dense and thorny beneath. In Lantana, a quartet of married couples from different strata of urban Australian life--wealthy Valerie and John, the middle-class Zats, working-class Jane and her estranged husband Pete, and struggling, just barely working-class Nik and Paula--are connected by psychiatrist Valerie, whose disappearance is the event around which these couples lives begin to revolve. The delicately layered storyline reminds viewers of three essential truths about human existence: No one is exactly what he or she seems; actions generate ripples that reach far beyond the actions themselves; and life does go on, no matter what, but it is never the same as before. Before what? Before everything

A divorced middle-aged man takes a break from his high pressure job in a big corporation to visit his brother who, with his wife, is struggling to hang onto a barely viable small business - a service station in suburban Adelaide. Argall's achievement is to give form and substance to everyday lives through a quietly elegiac naturalism which stands in contrast to the sense of 'otherness' in Jane Campion's flamboyant and quirky portrayal of suburban desperation in Sweetie

"Vicki-Ann and Dimity Hurley, sisters in their 20s, live in a small house in a dusty, seemingly underpopulated town of Sunray (proclaimed as a Tidy Town runner-up). ... Vicki-Ann ... runs a Unisex hair salon called Hairport, reads cheap romantic fiction and wears various shades of pink. The only man she was ever seriously involved with had an accident with a chain saw (his fate unknown), and now she's lonely and bored. So is her kid sister, 20-year-old Dimity ..., though she hasn't yet been involved with a man. She spends her days aimlessly riding around the dusty streets on her bicycle, and sharing sandwiches for lunch (in the decrepit Rotary Park) with Vicki-Ann; in the evening, she works as a waitress at the town's Chinese restaurant. And so life goes on until Ken Sherry ... drives into town to take over the local one-man radio station (3SR, 'Sounds of Sunray'). Sherry is what passes for a celebrity in these parts; he used to have a radio program in Brisbane, and even had a (presumably unsuccessful) television gig. A child of the hippie era now well into middle age, Sherry is a jaded hedonist who's dropped out to escape the hustle and bustle, as he puts it; more likely, this is the only job he could get in radio. He moves in next door to the Hurleys, and begins his daily broadcasts of tinpot philosophizing and old songs (Dionne Warwick, Glen Campbell) played on scratchy vinyl (3SR hasn't caught up with CDs yet). The film gently and sweetly depicts the tremendous impact Sherry has on the sisters. Inevitably, he seduces both, while making it clear he's not interested in long-term relationships. ... Characters ... include ... also the volatile Albert Lee ..., owner of the Chinese restaurant (which is apparently the only eatery in town). ... [who] is a nudist when off duty, and puzzles over Sherry's queries about the freshness of prawns, which he never orders. Then there's Dimity's obsession with fish, which is taken to its extreme when she imagines Sherry has gills"--Variety review by David Stratton, May 20, 1996

Australian rules ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Based on the award winning novel 'Deadly, Unna?' by Phillip Gwynne, 'Australian Rules' speculates on the deep rooted racism of the small rural fishing community of Prospect Bay, South Australia, where winning the football premiership is the most exciting thing to happen since the community won a tidy town competition. The film is viewed from the perspective of Blacky/Gary, a quiet, sensitive, and questioning youth who is best friends with football team mate Dumby Red, a brilliant Aboriginal footballer and idealist, apparently unaffected by the animosity of older cousin Perry towards the whites. The status quo changes after a farcical grand final presentation in which one of the goonyas (whites) is selected over arguably Best on Ground Dumby. The football field proves the town's racial arena whereby gunyas (blacks) are tolerated for their superior football prowess - off field, the small minded community is a pressure cooker of racism and hostilities which explode after a tragic event. Blacky's relationship to Dumby's sister Clarence also proves a point of contention with his abusive belligerent and racist father. A thoughtful and passionate film, 'Australian Rules' is as much about friendship, intolerance, and life in an isolated community as it is about racism. Also available on VHS
