Winter of our Dreams
John Duigan's realist drama of urban life is a wry contemplation of the disturbing nexus between self-expression and personal responsibility in relationships.

Lou (Judy Davis) is a Kings Cross prostitute and drug-taker, who forces bookshop owner Rob (Bryan Brown) to reconsider the premise on which his life functions when they meet following the suicide of a mutual friend.
