Love and Other Catastrophes

(Australia, 1996)

Young Aussies in college trying to deal with their problems. On another night I might have enjoyed this, but they just all seemed so trivial. Again, the problem might be with me rather than them. As I get older it’s hard to see the problems of twenty-year-olds as something to get really excited about, but of course I did, just like them. I know I shouldn’t let being an old fart interfere with my critical judgement … but I do, sometimes. The good news is that, though none of the actors went on to huge stardom, most of them have had good careers in the subsequent twenty years.
