Centre of my World | Watershed | Fri 30 June, 830pm
This stunning adaptation of Andreas Steinhoefel’s novel really stands out as something special. Twins Phil and Dianne had an unconventional childhood, living in an overgrown fairytale-esq mansion, in a small German hamlet and raised by their eccentric and fascinating mother, Glass.
Returning from summer camp high-schooler Phil finds tensions at home and distraction at school with his first foray into love with new transfer and heartthrob Nicholas, who ends up seducing Phil in a steamy school shower scene. Along with his wild friend Kat the three embark on a joyful summer that captures young life’s perfect moments but things are not all as they seem. We see things unfold for an infatuated Phil, with multiple players, as he tries to work out the centre of his world.
With incredible cinematography and a multi dimensional story that even has elements of SciFi, there’s realistic depth to the characters portrayed by some of the brightest talent. The story doesn’t just focus on a gay relationship either and we soon see how love can make a mess of everything. Joyful, funny and at times sad this is for everyone who has ever looked for love, found it, or can’t figure out exactly what to do with it.
