Official trailer for CARELESS LOVE (directed by John Duigan). This film opened in Australia on May 17.
CARELESS LOVE tells the story of Linh (Nammi Le), a Vietnamese Australian university student who secretly starts part-time work as an escort. She develops a close rapport with one of her clients, an enigmatic American art dealer (Peter O'Brien), who books her on a regular basis. For a time she manages to keep her two lives in separate compartments. But when she falls for a fellow student (Andrew Hazzard) her worlds collide and things get complicated.
'For twenty odd years John Duigan's The Year My Voice Broke was the best Australian film ... his latest, is in its league ... it has confidence, clarity, wit, the range and force of a novel, superb individuated performances and a morally troubling narrative'
'... extremely well-directed and brilliantly performed character study ... Careless Love is an engrossing well-made drama that audiences should enjoy despite its subject matter'
CHRIS SMITH (Film Blerg)
'... lyrical and moving experience'
ERIN FREE (Filmink)
'Careless Love weaves together various strands and elements that develop like a fascinating tapestry of relationships and circumstances that provoke and challenge the viewer'
ANDREW L. URBAN (Urban Cinefile)
'John Duigan's new film is a bewitching one in which morality, lies and perceptions are canvassed in a provocative and stimulating way ... Duigan has created a strong and likeable character for his protagonist and we are with Linh throughout her tumultuous journey'
LOUISE KELLER (Urban Cinefile)
'... the assurance of the direction, a reminder that Duigan -- who has been away from Australia for far too long -- was once considered the sensualist of the Australian cinema'
'Nammi Le gives a really fine performance in the leading role, creating a sad yet strong and resilient character with complete conviction'
