||Starring Heath Ledger, Bryan Brown and Rose Byrne. Rated MA.
Jimmy, a young chap, none too bright, surviving
in Sydney's colourful but seedy Kings Cross, currently employed as a tout outside one of
that area's many strip joints, has a plan, an ambitious plan to better himself and move up
in the world. At least in the world he knows.
He makes himself known to Pando (Brown), the
king cockey of the Cross' underworld, who hands him a simple job to do as a test for
future employment. All he has to do is deliver $10,000 to a little old lady in Bondi.
Borrowing a henchman's newly-renovated car for
the trip, he sets off to the beachfront suburb on one of Sydney's hottest days. The little
old lady appears to be out when he arrives, so rather than bring the package back to the
gangster, he decides to wait a while down on the beach.
