a 'bit' of a good film
This was one of those obscure little films put on late at night that I happened to flick over to and very much the sort of movie to be replayed on TV just because Kidman made a go of it (when they are stuck for programming). When I saw this film, many years ago, I was delighted by it's simple tale of a person wanting to break out from his shackles (ie - a guidance councilor) to try his hand in the cut-throat word of performance.

Our guy has had anough of the game and has decided to chuck it in after countless years trying to give slack-arse students some direction. After being fed up, he tells one of his students to do what you want and when the student asks him if he's happy in his job, he realises that it's time to make a change.

Neither falling into angst-fest or the screwball comedy genre, it sits pretty well as a charming, realistic tale of giving it a go and not caring if it doesn't quite come off the way you planned.

A solid cast and well written in terms of understanding the longing to be a performer was the most memorable parts of this film and I think it would be high time to check it out for myself again.
