Dir. Emma-Kate Croghan. 1996, 76 mins. 35mm. With Alice Garner, Frances O’Connor, Radha Mitchell, Matt Day. Film studies student Mia wants to switch classes and must jump through a plethora of logistical hoops and hurdles to get that highly coveted stamp on her university form. Meanwhile, jealousy simmers as her girlfriend spends time with a fellow student. Her roommate Alice romantically daydreams of her perfect type while she should be writing her PhD. And nice guy Mike is trying to find a new place to live. Set over 24 hours, this low-budget, independent comedy about love, friendship, share-houses, and university bureaucracy sizzles with sharp dialogue and radiant performances from its young leads. Every scene is imbued with vibrant ’90s idealism and pop-culture references.
