| Mediocre attempt at a self discovery film
John Waters gives a reasonable performance as Tom Garfield an Australian playwrite -made good- in the US. Tom is not happy with his life in the states and returns to his home to attempt reconciliation with his estranged wife. Whilst home we see his voyage of self discovery and associated temptations.

The movie had its moments but the once the twist in the plot was revealed it was quite predictable. There could be worse movies to waste a Sunday afternoon on.
