Sweethurt – Tom Danger (Turramurra, NSW, Australia) Sweethurt is a young adult comedy with two interwoven stories of love, friendship, and the paralyzing fear of dying alone. The story revolves around Jacob, a young man who embarks on a road-trip to a small, beach-side town with his two best friends and sociopath sister, for what promises to be a fun weekend of going through their newly-deceased grandfather's stuff - but upon arrival, Jacob's true motivations are revealed; his ex-girlfriend, Olivia, lives in the town, and Jacob wants one last shot at probably disappointing her again. Meanwhile, elsewhere in the same town, Skye has just had her heart broken, and the only one who can pick up the pieces is her best friend Carly - together, they go on a voyage through the night, having to deal with perverts, pirates, and worst of all - her parents. There is also a baby goat, of course. It features a wonderfully diverse cast of lead characters in a coming-of-age story very much in the same vein as 80's and 90's classics such as Say Anything, Chasing Amy and American Pie. 2020; 93 min.
