James Buckley as "John" (Photo by Laurence Bruce)
"... a tightly written and superbly acted piece that explored the difficulties of being a twenty-something living in London in the last throes of the 20th Century. Very similar to the Australian television series "The Secret Life of Us" (which aired here on Channel 4 in 2001), this film is funny, touching, absorbing and confronting. The relationships between the characters are raw and realistic - sometimes disturbingly so."
"... fun, thought-provoking ... The cast were superb, all of them giving strong performances, particularly Rebecca Nunn, Joanna Goodchild, James Buckley and Sally McLean. David Hankinson was under-used, but excellent in the scenes that he had. All up, it was a cohesive and well-supported ensemble performance ... a journey into friendship and relationships - not always happy - that gave a solid insight into the complexities of surviving as a young adult in a not-so-sympathetic modern world."

" ... immensely enjoyable ... wonderfully realistic ... refreshing ... The cast played their well defined characters superbly without exception ... (the dramatic events in the film) were handled both by the cast and writers with skill and sensitivity."

"Shot on digital video .... the 45-minute film about a group of vibrant and confused young people was strong..."

"... a splendid piece ..."
