A charming, offbeat romantic comedy
Dear Claudia is a refreshing and entertaining Australian comedy. It's surprisingly engaging: and Bryan Brown, who is cast against type as a shy romantic, is really good. I thoroughly enjoyed it. All the cast were good, especially Rel Hunt and Deb Mailman. It's a delightful story shot in a beautiful location. The idea of two people being drawn together by the voices of strangers from letters in a mailbag is really clever. It's a terrific feel good film from another promising Australian first time director.
