You want a cuppa?
Do you like being everyone's slave?... I'm sorry... You just do everything for everyone.
No, you're right. Tea's there. You can make it yourself.
I'm not saying you shouldn't... Don't you get sick of it, though?
Sick of what?
Well, fuck, if it was me, I'd leave the bastards to get on with it.
Probably bloody kill each other.

Beautiful Kate is a slow paced drama, with not much action but an overwhelming and disturbing story that will keep you interested for the entire movie. It's the acting that makes it all worth the detour. Ben Mendelsohn, Sophie Lowe, Bryan Brown and Scott O'Donnell made this unusual story watchable even though the plot will disgust more than one. Good job from Rachel Ward portraying this most dysfunctional family.
