Review by Louise Keller:
‘Get some new friends,’ Matt Zeremes’ Michael tells Anthea (Charlotte Gregg) in the park, when she tells him ‘All my friends are leaving Brisbane’. Gregg is especially appealing as the sensitive twenty-something blonde who feels as though the world is leaving her behind. Her friends have gone travelling, her relationships have fizzled out and her job seems like a dead end. Do you want to be happy now or in 10 years time…. be a free spirit, her friends tell her, but Anthea romanticises about the relationship she shared with her ex-boyfriend Jake (Gyton Grantley) who has just walked back into town and her life. It is the easy relationship she shares with Michael that is most important to Anthea; after all they have comforted each other when their respected relationships failed and their friendship is above all, comfortable. We feel like flies on the wall as Anthea confides in her flatmate Kath (Cindy Nelson) and Michael confides in his friend Tyson (Ryan Johnson). There’s the new budding relationship between Michael and the tousle-haired Simone (Romany Lee) and Anthea gets a second chance with Jake.
