Bad Weather

What do you not want when in the sex trade? Bad Weather

Okay, read that summary of the movie carefully. It's about sex workers on the remote island of Banishanti, and how their livelihoods are under threat of climate change. Yeah? However... the climate change aspects of the movie are almost 'oh yeah, there's this going on too'.

What it really is is a 'slice of life' movie of these women on Banishanti, how they are basically here against their will (but remain here as they have been dishonoured and have made a life for themselves out here). The most they do with climate change is the odd shot of water and the local crazy man/poet talking about things ending.

Not a bad movie about the rights of these woman, but not what was advertised.
