The Monkey's Mask

Samantha Lang, 2000


'No evidence, just a smell of sex and violence'

Lesbian private investigator Jill Fitzpatrick (Susie Porter - Mullet, Better Than Sex) is between jobs and between partners, when she gets a call to take on a missing person case.

The case is a literature student called Mickey (Abbie Cornish) who frequents poetry readings and hero worships Sydney's senior poets, to whom she also pens her own, highly emotive and sexually confronting poems.

Jill interviews Mickey's lecturer, Diana (Kelly McGillis - Witness, Top Gun) but finds herself instantly attracted to this sensuous, mysterious - and married - woman. Will passion get in the way of her profession as Diana becomes a suspect? And can Jill risk her own life on the way to discovering the awful truth?
