Topless Women Talk About Their Lives
Not yet rated
Time Out saysThis low budget first feature is somewhat in the vein of Emma-Kate Croghan's Love and Other Catastrophes (catchy title, freewheeling tone, and the romantic entanglements of a circle of pre-professional 20-year-olds). The title's a bit of a cheat: it's the name of the film-within-the-film, whose director proceeds to a nervous breadown after discovering his friends think the film's crap. Meanwhile, currently between boyfriends, Liz (Cormack) is pregnant after missing an abortion appointment. While the characters are more credibly real and messy than Croghan's cute packages, most of them lose out to the writer/director's rambling storytelling. Cormack, however, just about holds the picture together; and Sinclair does throw in a handful of memorably eccentric scenes - like have you ever seen a rabbit swimming lengths.
