2:37 is the latest
Australian movie by first-time director Murali Thalluri that focuses
on six high school students and their everyday struggle. The story
itself takes place on a regular school day and at exactly 2:37pm, a
tragedy occurs within the school with these six students whose lives
are forever irrevocably linked from the incident.
The director has
done a wonderful job at not only linking but delving into the lives
of these individuals that also touches on the many aspects of modern
society such as eating disorders, drug use and alienation. With a
R18+ rating, 2:37 may not be the movie for everyone but if you are a
compelling DVD with some dynamic and stellar acting performances by
Teresa Palmer and Joel Mackenzie, then 2:37 is definitely a movie
that will challenge your beliefs and question how some members of
society have fallen through the cracks. Riveting!
Presented in an
aspect ratio of 16:9 widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1, 2:37 is a
first class cinematic experience that also contains a plethora of
extras from an inside look into the scenes behind the movie and also
an interested featurette. Recommended for the movie connoisseur.
