Subdivision (Sue Brooks, 2009) wr. Ashley Bradnam, Janice Bradnam, Terry McCann, prod. Owen Johnston, Trish Lake, dp John Stokes; Bruce Spence, Gary Sweet, Steve Bisley, Brooke Satchwell, Kris McQuade; comedy

Subdivision is about the building industry; Bruce Spence is in it, but has few lines, and no acting required at all. Brooke Satchwell is supposed to be the token babe, but she’s just a chick who has found that ‘acting’ is easier than working 9-5 for a living.

Perhaps another year or two in script development might have added more fun, or more risk or more conflict ... or something more cinematically dramatic than a creditors' meeting for a builder going bankrupt to bind it all into a cohesive and incisive comedy. Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile.
