  • This Australian romantic charmer stars Michela Noonan as She, a kind of post-modern Bridget Jones, who is thoroughly confused about sex and romantic love. Ironically, She is a modern day romantic obsessed with the poetry of Wordsworth (the title of the film is taken from a Wordsworth poem) and the movement of the period, but she also holds on to a staunch post-feminist notion that romance is a patriarchal trap to enslave women. Virginal and heady She is shy and socially awkward, she works tirelessly at a used bookstore in Melbourne and ponders the notion of romance and sex. One day at work she spots an attractive young man reading poetry and instantly falls for him until he disarms her by playfully attempting to come onto her. She is instantly confused and swears to find a proper sexual partner in a whirlwind of sexual confusion and hilarity. She's quest to lose her virginity leads her into the arms of quite a few unsuspecting partners including an activist lesbian (Anni Finsterer), a Spanish tutor (Steve Adams) and her gay best-friend (Mitchell Brutel). Her confusion is only deepened by her madcap sexual exploits as she routinely falls for a bevy of mismatched partners. Not suprisingly, her quest for sex becomes a quest for romantic love in this darkly comic coming of age comedy that perfectly conveys the intellectual angst and romantic confusion of modern twentysomethings looking for love.
