Three Dollars

(Australia, 2005, 120 minutes)

A respected but broke chemical engineer whose wife has just lost her own job and who is about to veto a hefty development project on contaminated soil wonders whether he is doing the right thing. Would-be inspirational melodrama whose refusal to play by the tearjerker rules effectively nips it in the bud.
