Movie Info

A handful of strangers turn into rivals when they line up for an unusual competition in this comedy-drama from Australia. An auto dealership eager to drum up some publicity stages a contest in which some lucky person will drive away with a brand new SUV. All you have to do to win is be the person who keeps their hand on the car the longest, which turns out to be a greater endurance test than most folks expect -- in one such contest, the winner had to stand with their hand on the vehicle for a bit more than five days. One of the people who lines up for the contest is Tom (Craig Hall), a charming but arrogant salesman who is hooked on contests and will do almost anything to win. One of the other competitors is Jess (Melanie Linskey), a single mother and meter maid who wants a new car for her handicapped son. Tom pegs Jess as a lightweight who doesn't stand a chance against him, but it's the chance to prove him wrong (and the fact she needs the SUV a lot more than Tom) that keeps her in the contest far longer than anyone expects. Writer and director Anthony McCarten adapted Show Of Hands from his own novel. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
