Lantana

  • Just hold me till the anger subsides...

A complex ensemble piece, this award-winning Australian film kicks off with the discovery of a woman's body. How she died, and came to be in the bush, provides the anchor to hang the movie on. In reality, it is about an assortment of adults, and their various problems. A cop with anger management problems is cheating on his wife. Other characters are a married couple trying to deal with the death of their daughter, while the wife suspects her husband is having a gay affair.

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Lantana is a pretty, poisonous weed. The film is superficially about a dead woman, but actually takes a piercing look at trust in marriage. The youngsters are likely to find it slow, but adults, especially married adults, should find it worthwhile. The script is extremely well constructed.
