A Little Bit of Soul

Geoffrey Rush's first movie since Shine, and it was a great shot that missed somewhere along the line.

Rush is the Treasurer of Australia, who with his wife, is funding research into chickens. Any correlations you wish to make with Paul Keating and his pig farming days are your own. Two young scientists are doing research into expanding the lifespan and are using chickens for their test subjects. Of course, they used to be lovers and you can kind of bet they will again by the end of the movie.

The fun part of the film begins when you find out that the Treasurer and his wife are practicing satanists. The deconsecration jokes start flying and you can't help but smile at their antics.

The problem with this film is that it's about eight years too late. If it had been made and screened during the height of Paul Keating's reign in politics, it would have been a guaranteed smash. The scene where he explains how the economy works is worth the price of a rental alone.
