Product Description:

Australian director Jonathan Teplitzky's debut effort is a cleverly crafted and witty look at the intimacies and fears of two single twentysomethings who get more than they bargained for over the course of a three-night stand. Josh (David Wenham) and Cin (Susi Porter) meet at a party and while sharing a cab ride home decide to engage in a simple, uncomplicated one night stand. Since Josh is a Londoner in town for only a few days the sexually attracted pair don't have to worry about any expectations or strings attached, or do they' Set solely in the confines of Cin's bohemian loft Teplitzky recreates the story of the couple's sex-filled days using a variety of storytelling techniques, including flashback and voice-over dialogue as Josh and Cin retell their own story from their often wildly different perspectives. Albeit slightly stereotypical: she takes too long to get dressed while he leaves the toilet seat up in the bathroom, the frank musings of the two commitment phobes engages the viewer in a very realistic and heart-warming exploration of twentysomething relationships full of risks, fears, and meddling friends. (Cin and Josh's recreation of their own story is interspersed with a variety of vignettes in which close friends discuss their own relationships.) David Wenham and Susi Porter share an obvious chemistry that fuels their onscreen banter and sexual adventures with a refreshing spark. Similar in tone to Rob Lowe and Demi Moore's ABOUT LAST NIGHT...or Richard Linklater's BEFORE SUNRISE Teplitzky successfully recreates an oft told story that begins with lust and ends with the unexpected surprise of love.
