Movie Info

Fifteen-year-old Australian youth Steve Carson (Rod Zuanic) is a product of a home that can charitably be described as dysfunctional. His father is a drunk, his brother a slimy-dope dealer. Carson promises his social worker--and himself--that he'll escape this environment and make something of himself. Unfortunately, this involves grandiose and unrealistic schemes that lead to increasingly severe criminal acts. Fast Talking was co-financed by the Australian Film Commission and Merchant-Ivory. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Fast Talking

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Most of the characters in this movie are disposable.

August 30, 2004 | Full Review…

It plays more as a cartoonish comedy than as a hard-edged, street-smart coming-of-age film.
