Story
Australian filmmaker John Duigan followed up his captivating The Year My Voice Broke with the equally likeable Flirting. Noah Taylor repeats his "Danny" characterization from the earlier film, while Thandie Newton plays a Ugandan exchange student who attends an Australian girls boarding school. Billeted at a nearby boy's school, Danny finds himself falling in love with Newton, though he is frequently at a loss as to how to express himself. The personal story is given substance by Duigan's perceptive slant on prep-school life, affectionately detailing the importance attached by the students to what some might consider trivialities. Flirting is the second in a proposed trilogy of John Duigan-directed films revolving around Danny's "awkward" years. Featured in the cast as one of Newton's schoolmates is Nicole Kidman--not yet a star, though already recognized in Australia as an actress of above-average skills. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide (and blockbuster.com)
