Alex Proyas, director of The Crow and Dark City, switches gears for the lightweight romantic comedy Garage Days. Set in the Sydney suburb of Newtown, Freddy (Kick Gurry) really wants his band to make it big. The band consists of his girlfriend Tanya (Pia Miranda) on bass, the drugged-out Lucy (Chris Sadrinna) on drums, and the mopey Joe (Brett Stiller) on guitar. Their inept manager, Bruno (Russell Dykstra), thinks they can get successful if they hook up with record executive Shad Kern (Marton Csokas). However, the band develops personal problems when Joe's girlfriend Kate (Maya Stange) announces she's pregnant and falls for Freddy, then gothic girl Angie (Yvette Duncan) seduces Joe, and Tanya gets involved with Lucy. Garage Days premiered at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

Rent "The Commitments" instead.

Delightful story of an Aussie "grunge" group by talltale August 5, 2004 - 8:11 AM PDT

What an energetic, freewheeling, fun and funny movie GARAGE DAYS is! Full of delightful visual treats (Alex Proyas--"The Crow" and "Dark City"--directed) it features a terrific cast of mostly (to us Americans, at least) unknowns. This is a wonderful film that achieves its "feel-good" effect via an unusual ending that satisfies in SO many ways. Interestingly, the old music on the soundtrack outdoes any of the new stuff played by the bands on display--which may be part of the moviemaker's point. Try this one. And--unless you're Australian--leave the English subtitles on to get the full effect of the clever, heavily-accented dialog.
