Rated NR

It’s an emofilm, a film wherein the specialist of young feelings that touch upon love and flawless skin are explored as though for the first time through a lens of beauty and also of course truth. Abbie Cornish, who’s so pretty that roses die of shame when they see her, plays Heidi, a young girl on a trip of self-discovery and nudity with boys and touching of private and special parts. After Heidi kisses her mom’s boyfriend, she flees to the youthful and wintry world of Australia’s Jindabyne and the Snowy Mountains where she meets and loves and learns while special music by Decoder Ring who are so post-emo that they’re emo again plays in the background of soft lighting and emotions. Also, there’s a boy, and he’s played by Sam Worthington who is the only boy in the world whose good looks and chin are sharp enough to cut through the wave of pain and sorrow and wonderfulness that comes from having Heidi expose her naked breasts with such honesty and force. If you don’t care about non-feeling things like “plot” but are more interested in the perfection of the textures of the visual and the beautiful, and you like your dialogue to have Realness which can hurt, but even hurting is important, then you should see Somersault which is made for people who aren’t mean but have feelings.
