Looking for Grace

Description
The long-awaited new film from Sue Brooks, the acclaimed and multi award-winning director of Japanese Story and Road To Nhill, LOOKING FOR GRACE is an intimate, funny and profoundly moving story about the complexities of family life. When rebellious 16-year-old Grace (rising star Odessa Young) takes off, her exasperated mum and dad (the superb Radha Mitchell and Richard Roxburgh) enlist the help of a close-to-retirement detective, and begin the long drive from Perth out to the West Australian wheatbelt to try to find her. On the journey, the two must confront the realities of their changing relationship to one another, and to their daughter. Wry, intriguing and poignant, Brooks' unflinching reflection on the disruptive effects of both adolescence and middle age boasts her trademark sense of character, acerbic humour and eye for the hypnotic rhythms of Australia's regional landscapes. Innovatively structured to incrementally reveal each character's journey - and secrets - from numerous vantage points, LOOKING FOR GRACE is ultimately a beautiful, bold and unmistakably Australian story that reminds us that life is precious, and can change in the blink of an eye.

A tender and bittersweet drama about the vagaries of life and the consequences of our actions.

With its painterly eye for the parched saltpans and wheat fields bisected by snaking roads, the film has a lonely, elegiac beauty. The unexpected comedy can give way in an instant to something darker, but it's never mean-spirited.

The characters depicted are flawed in all sorts of ways, but Brooks's evident sympathy for all of them shines through and the result is an offbeat road movie filled with surprises and revelations.

What sometimes shapes as promising about a bitsy tale of an outback search for a missing teen is never quite delivered upon here.

The actors are all strong, with Mitchell and Roxburgh (a long way from TV's Rake) putting in fine performances, and a breakthrough turn from Young, whose elusive Grace holds this subtle saga together.

Told in a fractured, non-linear style, with overlapping narratives retelling the story from different perspectives, the parts can be tantilising but the whole doesn't come together the way it should, the payoff being more of a whimper than a bang.

Even as its tone circles back to aching naturalism, there's something tenuous about the pic's tender resolution -- not to mention a teasing sense that more interesting untold stories might lie on the untold fringes.

[Brooks] just wants you to feel for these people. And you do.

It is really only when we're with Grace, and when the things that happen are happening to her, that we find any of the grace that Brooks is looking for.

Brooks' screenplay is wryly funny about human behaviour, keenly observing the awkward ways anxious people rub up against each other.

Brooks generally is so bewitched by her characters' opacity that they remain frustratingly remote, even in the rare moments when they open up, diminishing the sorrow of the final-act tragedy.

The main disappointment of Looking for Grace is the finale, which replaces the Altmanesque ensemble style with something reminiscent of Kiéslowski's last works.
