I first must explain that I am a Sydney resident and know the locations of this film well. As far as the acting and photography goes the film does quite well. As far as the plot and storyline goes it's all downhill. We are meant to believe that first of all this couple; she an AMES teacher and he, a boat builder can afford to live in a million dollar house overlooking star studded Tamarama beach (yes ... I know ... it is only semi-renovated). One presumes they are in their early to mid thirties and have two children whom they leave behind to go on a backpacking holiday through Cambodia. Whilst at a full, half whatever moon party on the beach (normally the realm of 20 somethings straight from College) they take ecstacy with dramatic consequences. She, by the way is around 4 to 5 months pregnant.
The film could have been (like most Australian films) edited down to about 50 minutes. If you leave out the domestic histrionics, around 40 minutes. The fast forward button can be used judiciously during these scenes without affecting one's understanding of the plot.

SPOILER ALERT; the crosscutting between the premature birth of the female lead's child after a drunken car accident and the violent death of one of the characters is so contrived it is silly beyond words.

Presumably this was given the green light by the culture cops of the NSW Film and TV office and Screen Australia because of its' reference to:
* Domestic Conflict
* Marital Infidelity
* Child Prostitution.
* The female lead teaches English to migrants (presumably not in the WASP enclave of Sydney's Eastern Suburbs).

"Something happened the night of the party, after you went to sleep." Steph McKinney (Palmer) and her boyfriend Jeremy go on a vacation to Cambodia with her sister and her husband Dave (Edgerton). They are having a good time laying on the beach and relaxing. When they return home only three of them make the trip. Now all three are trying to figure out where Jeremy is and why he didn't come back. Only one person knows the truth. This is another perfect example of a movie where the idea is much more exciting then the actual movie. While the movie isn't that bad it is pretty slow moving up until the last 20 min. Until then the movie jumps around a bit and makes it a little hard to follow for the first half. The acting is very good but nothing really seemed to happen for most of the movie. Again, the last quarter is good but getting to that point is a little bit of a struggle. Overall, a movie that starts off very slow but worth sticking with to see the ending. I give it a B-.

this is an australian film that was a big hit at the sundance film festival and deservedly so. a husband and wife, her sister and the sister's boyfriend take a trip together to cambodia. they are in their thirties. the couple have two children back home and a third on the way. the pregnant wife can't hold up for long and goes to bed early. this is the kickoff for the other three to get into trouble. one of them goes missing.

for the rest of the film we see the three remaining characters trying to sort out their lives in Sydney. intercut with that action are flashbacks to cambodia so we can discover what happened,

one thing i think this captures extremely well is the supposed safety bubble tourists travel in where they believe because they are tourists in that country, they are somewhat protected. thus, they walk freely about, drinking, mingling And not really watching what is going on. this is a really bad idea. and the consequences if it may haunt one formthe remainder of one's life.

first rate screenplay. i now want to see this writer-director's earlier film, ANIMAL KINGDOM.

I originally bought this movie because I'm a Teresa Palmer fan and I would buy anything with her in it. I was pleasantly surprised with this Australian production. Rather than go into the details of the movie again since previewers have already done a fine job at that, I will instead mention that the main characters roles were all too familiar as far as Western tourists behaving so cavalier in a foreign country. I lived 20 years of my life overseas in various countries and the writers were spot on with portraying tourist's bad behavior while traveling. I've been to Cambodia among other South East Asian countries and this is one particular country with an especially haunting and violent history; one in which you don't want to act up in public and bring unwanted attention to yourselves. One reviewer mentioned the Westerner Safety Bubble and was exactly right with their comments. The actors did a great job and just wish Teresa had the lead role, but supporting actress works for me as well. I don't regret buying this one. Note to Western Tourists/Travelers (and this comes from a seasoned world traveler): Just because you travel with loaded pockets compared to some of the poor countries you visit, doesn't mean you won't be involuntarily relieved of that money during your travels. Exercise extreme vigilance and don't invite unwanted attention to yourselves.
