Love Serenade

Year: 1996
Production Co: Jan Chapman Productions
Director: Shirley Barrett
Producer: Jan Chapman
Writer: Shirley Barrett
Cast: Miranda Otto

Another one that came out of the freewheeling 90s where Australian investors had truckoads of cash to throw at the next Priscilla and Muriel but never found it.

They never found it because every pile of crap they backed was another variation on this - a quirky comic love story with quirky characters in a desert location that wasn't a) lovable or b) comical.

Dour and depressing, Otto tries hard but isn't given anything to work with.

She plays the younger sister of a psychotic woman who becomes convinced the sleazy radio DJ who moves into town is in love with her - all the while he's trying to seduce the naive younger girl.
