"It makes his fall even harder. He's had a year off alcohol since (his girlfriend) Robin died and he blames himself for her death. That scene at the bar where Jock (the local police officer played by David Wenham) offers him a drink, any alcoholic could testify it's that easy to think that one couldn't hurt. He's in this town, he doesn't know anyone, his guard is down and he looks down at these people, which comes back to bite him."

You’ve got a natural structure to cut from one to the other, waiting for them finally to meet for the climax – structurally it’s so easy. People always say to me ‘what are you going on about comedy for when you talk at film school, it looks like so much fun it must be easy.’ And I say ‘no, comedy is the hardest thing there is. I tell you what – you say or do something that’ll make me laugh – c’mon, c’mon, make me laugh!’ As you see, there’s a problem there.”
