Anthony LaPaglia stars in a great flick. An abhorred----at least in Australia [where this was filmed]----real estate agent gets a phone call.
He's one of those guys that always has a snarl on his face; not a sympathetic guy AND a real estate agent selling houses to people that can AFFORD the over-priced houses that people that need them CAN'T.
This, lonely, recently-divorced man with an ex-wife that is not only more-successful than he is, but she's a TV Soap star! Their son is confused, and on the verge of being an actor, himself.
The phone rings. Anthony LaPaglia's character begins a conversation with a woman claiming to be his mother (that died last year!). He meets this older woman whose friendship proves valuable as his world crumbles around him.
I haven't smoked in many years, but remind you that there are no "liberal" filming guidelines that that prohibit all the smokers from DOing what they DO.
