‘There’s no crime in going out for a drink with your flatmate’s ex, is there?’ asks 20-something Zoe in this Australian indie drama. Well, what if your flatmate and the ex had recently rekindled their romance? And what if there’s an obvious sexual chemistry between you and the ex? Zoe’s kept her life pretty simple up to now – studying, watching Dawson’s Creek and knitting – but it’s all about to get very complicated. The set-up is classic limited dating pool drama, but this is a fresh, confident piece of filmmaking that captures the heartbreak and upheaval of love. With a budget of under £5,000 sourced through crowdfunding, Zoe.Misplaced is rough around the edges, but shows just what can be achieved with a smart script and great performances.
