Settle down. I mean below The Highrise. Joining in with River for Sunday Selections.

Not too long after we moved here, roads flooded. I remember seeing Melbourne Grammar boys wading and skylarking through the water.

Many years on, last year the same area flooded. I think the drainage has now been properly fixed. Time will tell.


Teenager Shane (Wil King) has arrived in Sydney's seedy Kings Cross from rural Goulburn and on his second day working in a liquor store meets two customers, Will (Guy Simon) and Peter (Simon Burke).

Shane endures the pangs of coming to terms with his sexuality through his infatuation with Will and his growing friendship with the older, experienced Peter.

I think we all have it occasionally when things seem to be happening for everyone else and your life seems to have paused and nothing is changing for the better. You are basically
