Caroline Morgan is delighted when her sister, Beth, brings her movie star daughter, Honey Halloway, home for a visit. But when Beth is suddenly sent to rehab, Caroline is forced to have Honey move in to her suburban home. Honey struggles with life without an entourage, and her cousins, Clare and Harriet, struggle with a movie star hogging the bathroom. But after Honey leads Caroline to uncover a family secret, Caroline struggles most of all, as her life quickly falls apart. Trapped together in the house, a middle-aged woman and a teen starlet must each wrestle with who they really are.Written by
This film was really enjoyable, if not a little tacky to start, all the elements worked really well throughout and to the end. I liked the daughters immensely and Robyn Butler was obviously great. Quite a lot of the running jokes throughout were very funny and i often laughed aloud. Hamish Blake was very good, Robbie Magasiva--as handsome and charming as ever. Lucy fry as Honey even wins you over in the end. The weakest link is Portia de Rossi (who I usually like) terrible overacting, unconvincing and extremely weak in comparison to the natural acting styles of the other Australian cast members. The personal relationships between all the supporting cast were interesting as well. I almost didn't watch it because of it's low rating and bad review but it moved along quickly enough to get good and keep me watching. Anyway, I felt bad for it and decided to write a review in the hope more people might watch and enjoy it. I think Australia make spectacular films and always look forward to choosing one from the vast range offered.
