Tony Petersen (Jack Thompson) is an ex-electrician at university in pursuit of an arts degree. Married with two children, he’s carrying on an affair with Patricia who, besides being a tutor in English at the university is also the wife of Associate Professor of English who is responsible for Petersen’s studies.

Women find Petersen irresistible, and the attraction is mutual. He even actively participates in a public sex act protest by the University Women’s Liberationists.

Plotwise pic is not too strong but has several meaningful meanderings. It contains some of playwright David Williamson’s best writing yet. He’s more disciplined and doesn’t let the action get farcically out of hand and displays depths of sensitivity, humanity and gentleness mostly lacking previously.
