Look Both Ways

Genre: Drama; Starring: Justine Clarke, William McInnes, Anthony Hayes; Director: Sarah Watt; Release Date Limited: 04/14/2006; Runtime (in minutes): 100; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Kino International

Ineffably Australian and intriguingly (rather than annoyingly) artsy, Look Both Ways introduces a handful of people gobsmacked by life-changing crises, all of them trying to make sense of responsibility, mortality, and connection. And forging her own new path, animator Sarah Watt makes a delicate, empathetic live-action directorial feature debut: She mixes her media, returning to animation to express dreams and fantasies while establishing the connection between Meryl (Justine Clarke), an artist, and Nick (William McInnes, Watt’s husband), a newspaper photographer.
