The Book of Revelation
Time Out says
Estranged from his dance partner and lover, Bridget (Anna Torv), because he cannot talk to her about his ordeal, Daniel internalises his feelings. Then, as anger takes over, he searches for his abusers. Co-scripted by Andrew Bovell (‘Lantana’), Ana Kokkinos’s film intelligently explores the book’s central conceit, which reverses gender roles in order to explore abusive sexual power. Yet her approach is too arty and restrained.
Kudos, though, to Greta Scacchi, for her vanity-free portrayal of Daniel’s cancer-ridden teacher and mentor, Isabel, and to Aboriginal actor Deborah Mailman, whose radiant Julie offers a glimpse of salvation.
