Hello! I just wanted to let everybody know of a new community called Perils of Mia, the only LJ community dedicated to the critically-acclaimed, independent Australian film "Love and Other Catastrophes" in which Frances O'Connor made her fabulous debut! Directed by 23-year-old Emma-Kate Croghan, who co-wrote the script with Helen Bandis and Yael Bergman, Catastrophes was shot on a shoe-string budget of $38,000 and released in 1996. I have created this community in the hope that there may be some other fans of this film out there, and that, like me, they've just been waiting for the place to discuss it! Whether you're a fan of the movie, the stars, the director, or just the country it came from, please don't hesitate to join up!
