Bad Day

Australia, 1991 (MIFF 1991, Fiction)

Director: Polly Seddon

A dramatic monologue, delivered with great energy and fire, expressing the pent up feelings of an angry, disillusioned young woman. Over-the-top performance, script and direction combine to produce a parody of feminine outrage with which we can all identify. (F.F)
