San Jose CA — Camera 12
Love Can Turn You Upside Down — SOMERSAULT.
Story of a naive, though sexually-aware teenager who runs away from home after “playfully” seducing her mother’s boyfriend. She has no money and only empty promises from the men she comes in contact with. She ends up at a ski resort town and gets a job at a mini-market. She falls hard for a handsome local farmer boy. We watch her stumble from place to place barely keeping herself out of danger. She is slowly learning just how powerful her femininity is becoming. She is supposed to be around 16 years old.
The actress is played by some wacky combination of a hot Daryl Hannah and Nicole Kidman. She was simply mesmerizing. This is probably the best thing I’ve seen this year thusfar.
This film swept the Australian equivalent Oscars, winning 13 awards.
