Time Out says

Ben Mendelsohn is employed as drama therapist at a mental hospital; completely inexperienced, he finds it tough when Otto, ring leader of the patients, insists they stage a production of Mozart's Così fan tutte...with predictably chaotic results. Though the film is too broadly 'comic' and, in the end, sentimental to live up to director Joffe's earlier Spotswood, and while its treatment of mental illness is at the very least dodgy, it does have a quirky vitality, some good lines and likeable performances by many Australian stalwarts (even Greta Scacchi has a nice, uncredited cameo).
