Ostensibly a movie in the same way that a Victorian folly is ostensibly a Japanese temple or a medieval castle. That is: not at all. Like a themed high-school prom from 1994, and an accidental horror.
Nice looking film, and impressive cast: Bryan Brown, Rachel Griffiths. Pity it seems we won’t get this here in the U.S.; it’ll just get dumped on DVD without any to-do at all.
