Wish You Were Here

3

Not the happiest trip...

On a jolly to Cambodia, businessman Jeremy King (Antony Starr) goes missing, leaving new girlfriend Steph (Teresa Palmer), her pregnant sister (Felicity Price) and the latter’s hubby (Joel Edgerton), to figure/fight it out back home in Sydney.

The shock of loss is brilliantly evoked, with a shot of Edgerton staring, devastated, at the embers of a full-moon party fire, but Kieran Darcy-Smith’s debut (co-written by Price) seems more concerned with its characters’ marital problems than the central mystery.

Handsomely shot and well acted, particularly by Edgerton, it meanders a bit in the domestic sphere, but the climax makes the journey worthwhile.
