Wasn’t expecting it but this was a very good movie. Engaging throughout. Patrick Brammall can act. Loved Abbey Lee’s ‘second scene.’ Will leave it at that.
Oh, evidently, need 10 lines to post. But I don’t feel like writing 10 lines. Don’t read on.

This film is great for so many reasons.
First and foremost, it shows a successful young person who is having the time of his life. What makes this movie a different type of party movie is that it braves some of the tough questions that the majority of modern cinema is too scared to ask.
We can look at other party movies that have gone before it, with immense box office success like The Hangover (2009), now a franchise, which by itself, must have almost single-handedly re-ignited global tourism to Las Vegas! Why has the Hangover movie franchise been so successful? What is it about letting go and having a sense of exaggerated release from whatever we feel binding us in our daily lives? Maybe this is getting a little deep for a movie review? But if we look at the box office receipts for The Hangover, people are paying to escape, paying to release, paying to watch a movie about some dudes who get so wasted that they can’t remember what happened the next morning and spend the rest of the movie piecing back together what happened the night before.
Enter Ruben Guthrie and you have a movie, with moments that are equally in the party extreme. So if you are looking for that type of release and superficial fun where you don’t have to think too much, then you are definitely going to like parts of Ruben Guthrie all the way through.
Equally, if you want to be entertained, but also engaged in terms of your feeling your brain is actually switched on, then Ruben Guthrie is going to give you plenty to think about, potentially for a long time after the movie has finished.
The cinematography is of a high standard and shows some of the beautiful parts of Sydney that we take for granted like Tamarama, Bondi and our wonderful beach culture, so if you’re into Sydney then definitely add Ruben Guthrie to your watchlist.
The acting is a testament to the depth of talent that we have here in Australia, no wonder we keep supplying Hollywood with a steady stream of our best.
Patrick Brammall as Ruben Guthrie is tour de force and sometimes during the movie I felt like I was watching a theatre play, so pure was the acting and so powerful the message.
Writer director Brendan Cowell, should congratulate himself on a very sharp screenplay with very few weaknesses. With Ruben Guthrie, he has created a piece of cinema that will endure because it’s a postcard of beautiful Sydney, because it’s a movie about fun and release, because it’s about love and sacrifice and, ultimately, because its about the men and women inside us all.
