PREVIEW: Sleeping Dogs
Amy is a seemingly normal young girl, adored by her parents and golden-boy fiance. Her future looks bright until her fiance suggests they tell each other their darkest secrets... things they have never told anyone. When Amy finally relents and reveals her secret, everything falls apart.
Bobcat Goldthwait has written and directed a story that adeptly explores honesty, family, forgiveness, and courage. By frankly probing our relationships and idealisation of the absolute virtues of honesty, Sleeping Dogs is a funny and perceptive dark comedy.
Sure to be one of the most talked about films of the year, this is independent filmmaking at its best: raw, original, and edifying. Fuelled by a standout lead performance by Melinda Page Hamilton, well-drawn characters and Goldthwait's very special sensibilities, this sparkling comedy proves that it doesn't take money to make a film that everyone will want to see.
