Friends and Strangers

  James Vaughan

  Australia     84 minutes


Wayward twentysomethings Ray and Alice serendipitously bump into each other and impulsively decide to go camping. On the trip, a series of bumbling romantic attempts and miscommunications fills the air with awkward tension. Directionless and adrift, their efforts to communicate with each other and the people around them fall hilariously flat. Back in Sydney, the mishaps continue as Ray hopes to secure a freelance wedding videography gig at the home of a bizarre potential client. A wonderfully off-kilter oddity, Friends and Strangers is filled with unforgettable characters and memorable misunderstandings. Expertly composed by director James Vaughan, the film is a dryly comic look at the absurd misadventures of youth.
