Based on Cowell's stage play, the film is as high spirited as the subject matter, delving into the social pressures surrounding the drinking culture and its effects on life, love and family

An initially archetypal trajectory (boy loses girl; boy goes on mission to get her back) becomes something curlier and less conventional, with lashings of abrasive dialogue that recall its stage origins

Perhaps Ruben Guthrie makes more sense if you watch it while drunk. Being sober, I loathed it.

It's an entertaining trip, but one that's also thought provoking and appropriately sobering.

Sails breezily along with terrific dialogue, great performances and an extremely relatable story. It's excellent contemporary entertainment, the kind of character and situation-based comedy the French do so well but Australian cinema, not so much.

Cowell makes his feature film début as writer/director/producer, bringing it to the screen with Patrick Brammall in terrific, tormented form as our titular 'hero'.
