Promised

00s | NR | Feature Film

In Melbourne, 1953, five-year-old Robert and newborn Angela are promised in marriage by their fathers, Sal and Joe. Against the misgivings of Angela’s mother, Sal is insistent that he must uphold his promise to Joe. Fast-forward to 1974, and Angela is now a beautiful, intelligent and modern lady whose aspirations lie beyond the family pastry shop. Robert, now 25, has returned home from studying law abroad at Oxford. Despite changing times, fading traditions and Angela’s love for another man, she is still expected to marry Robert. As a web of secrets, lies and revelations surface, it teaches everyone involved that love, like life, can never be perfectly arranged.
