ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review There are no big dramatic rises and falls in writer-director Cate Shortland's feature debut, just a sense of confused lives unfolding. In a way, with its sober examination of a young woman adrift, it echoes Maurice Pialat's "A Nos Amours" (1983, due out on DVD next month) and Ashley Judd's feature film-starring debut, "Ruby in Paradise" (1993)...This is the kind of small filmmaking that leaves a big impression.

Review Cate Shortland's stirring first feature, Somersault, is a good example of a movie about characters who aren't conventionally "likeable," but who are sympathetic and engaging nonetheless. That tricky feat has as much to do with the writer/director's evocative storytelling as the drama's talented cast. It's a small film in which nothing too earth shattering seems to happen, but in the end it's clear that more than a few lives will never be the same again...Though Somersault is a bit overlong and deliberately paced, it makes up for its few lapses with fine human observations and several quietly wondrous moments.
