| Excellent, and rather confronting, Australian film
In my opinion, Call Me Mum is a hidden gem of Australian movies in the 21st century. It is one that probably gets replayed only once every year or two by SBS and is certainly not out on DVD (yet). For a film which only stars five people - and is set in just three places: a plane, a (very 1950s perhaps) house, and a hospital room - it is quite great. The characters don't interact much, with the exception of Keith and Dellmay (husband and wife, otherwise known as DellKeith), and is almost set up in like a monologue/mockumentary style as each of them tell their story to the camera. Kate (Catherine McClements) is a foster mother who is very upfront with the world, Warren (Dayne Christian) is an 18 year old who should have his whole life ahead of him, Flo (Vicki Saylor) is a very ill, very sorrowful woman, and DellKeith (Lynette Curran and Ross Thompson) are very strange people indeed, especially Keith.

Call Me Mum definitely wasn't quite what I was expecting when I recorded it on television recently, but that was the beauty (and surprise) of it.
