A group of 20-somethings revolving around pregnant Liz (Danielle Cormack) confront a Generation X medley of 'births, deaths, and marriages' in Harry Sinclair’s debut feature, developed from the eponymous TV3 series. They experience, "the agony of failed love and ambiguous love, the agony of loneliness, the ecstasy of sex and the discovery of maturity" (Australian critic Andrew L Urban). In this excerpt from the well-received film the cast faces vexing coathangers, skirts, rubber gloves and panic attacks. NSFW caution: features actual Teutonic topless women.
TWTATL is a blast of fresh, cool film air from the Land of the Long White Cloud, with a beguiling mix of comedy and drama. What it does well is create emotional catch-points for the audience, turning what may have been clever, low budget experimentation into meaningful observation.– Urban Cinefile (Australia) critic Andrew L Urban
