I saw this Australian morality tale on TV one night, was intrigued enough to watch the whole thing and was pleasantly surprised by the time it was over.

A high-flying Melbourne corporate type goes home to visit his blue colour brother in Adelaide (Holden), running a struggling service station and trying to keep his head above water. While the big shot tries to understand why everyone around him are content with their little lives, including his brother's family and no-hoper employee (Mendelsohn), he remembers there's more to life than making money.

The plot kind of meanders and takes a long time to say something fairly simple, but it's a pleasant enough journey getting there.
