"Everything Goes" goes down like a house on fire!
I saw this lovingly crafted short film at the Sydney Film Festival last week - and I've been thinking about it ever since.
Based on a short story by American author Raymond Carver, "Everything Goes" is a hilarious, touching story of love and loss set amongst the bric-a-brac of a suburban yard sale.
Hugo Weaving, Abbie Cornish and Sullivan Stapleton give memorable and beautifully nuanced performances. The audience I saw it with also loved the "performance" by Hugo's dog!
A good companion film for this little gem would be Sofia Coppola's impressionistic romance "Lost in Translation".
