However, his plans for her pain and his pleasure come unhinged when he wakes up to find himself bleeding and bound to a chair in her kitchen. It doesn’t take long for Jack to realize that Emily is not the woman he thoughts she was.
For one night Jack and Emily engage in a twisted and thrilling courtship of the sexes that leads one to wonder which one of them will survive the night…
“Veteran John Jarratt co-directed this with Kaarin Fairfax, and while they let fly at each other with copious energy, their verbal conflagration could have benefitted from fewer swear words, more jokes and a tighter running time.” 3AW
” … a nifty little black comedy bubbling and bristling with surprises and invention.” Filmink
“This war of words is a big, long, pointless spat and a cinematic endurance test of the worst sort – hard to take seriously and nothing to laugh at. “I could live without another slut tirade,” Fairfax says at one point, and for a brief fleeting moment, the film absolutely nails it.” The Guardian
In the US, the film was released on VOD on October 21st by Ozpix Entertainment.
