Australian experimental, observational comedy about young people in Sydney struggling to get ahead in love and their careers.
Chocolate Oyster follows twenty-somethings Ellie and Taylor, who live in Bondi apartments they can’t really afford, and purse their dreams in a city that seems intent on thwarting them. Taylor chase a dance career by day and works as a waitress at night, while supporting her new boyfriend Henry, an aspiring playwright. Tired of being with a dependent and juvenile boyfriend, Ellie ends her relationship and begins to see Craig, a chef who dreams of creating a signature dish that will make his name. With the story workshopped between actors and director, and a great deal of improvisation, the monochrome Chocolate Oyster has a breezy quality that reflects both the beauty and difficulty of life.
