Abstract:

The friendship between two working class girls falls apart as the ghost of the family - an absent, alcoholic mother, a predatory father - hovers destructively. The potential for lesbian sexuality never fully emerges. A lyrical impulse abstracts the realism of dialogue, setting (Melbourne's outer west) and the representation of violence, a lyricism anchored by the filmmaker's expressed preference for 'strong, static compositions'. Multiple award winner.
