Winter of Our Dream | Far East Double Feature (DVD)
Directed by John Duigan
WINTER OF OUR DREAMS - Rob McGregor (Bryan Brown F/X) is the charismatic owner of a popular Paddington bookshop living an open marriage with his academic wife Gretel and still holding onto the 60s spirit of 'free love'. While Gretel is pursuing an affair, Rob learns of the death of Lisa Blaine, an activist friend from his past. As Rob starts looking for reasons behind Lisa's suicide, he comes in contact with her friend Lou (Judy Davis, Damage), a prostitute and heroin addict wrestling with her own personal demons - the two are drawn together and when Rob rallies Lou to free herself from her addiction she temporarily moves into his house going cold turkey - adding further strains to his already complicated life. Nominated for 7 Australian Film Institute awards, winning the Best Actress in a Lead Role (Davis) award. Presented in a restored widescreen transfer, Winter Of Our Dreams is written and directed by internationally acclaimed filmmaker John Duigan (Flirting) and features the screen debut of an eighteen-year-old and future visionary director, Baz Luhrmann (The Great Gatsby). FAR EAST - Set in the mysterious Philippines, a lonely wife rediscovers an old flame while her husband investigates rumors of political suppression. When journalist Peter Reeves and his wife Jo visit the 'The Koala Klub', they run into Morgan (Bryan Brown, Cocktail), a man from Jo's past. Twenty years earlier, Jo and Morgan were lovers in Saigon and although time has passed, it is obvious the flame could be rekindled. But when Peter is captured by secret Government troops, tortured and faced with certain death, Morgan is the only one who can rescue him. John Duigan (Sirens) stylishly directs this haunting film inspired by the classic, Casablanca.
