Movie: Girl Asleep

I wanted to like this Australian movie but – oh dear- there’s 1 hour and 17 minutes of my (not inexhaustible) life wasted.  A mixture of ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ and ‘Heathers’, ‘Grease’ and every other teen movie you’ve ever seen, it was derivative and wallowing in 1970s kitsch nostalgia.  The red-headed boy from ‘Upper Middle Bogan’ (Harrison Feldman) played exactly the same character here; Bethany Whitmore was quite good as 15 year old Greta but overall it just left me cold.  Very disappointing.

Two stars from me, David.
