The Adventures of Milla Carter

 

"IT'S DAMN NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT DOWN"

 

The young couple's holiday to die for, Milla Carter's and Franklyn's, looks in danger of becoming just that. The future depicted is dysfunctional, cold and frighteningly voyeuristic. Corporate power presides, with no respect for privacy. Saturated with hard core pornography this world has lost the power to even be offended.

 

TV Presenter JULIETTE FOSTER: "Imaginative and sexually explicit. Yet the edgy “in your face” writing and tightly structured plot are damn near impossible to put down."

An older couple, ex-glamour model Ruth and her rich husband Pearce, had engaged Milla and Franklyn to swap bodies, in a process called ‘Transition’. The lure of such a 'Body Holiday', reacquainting intimately in younger bodies, was simply irresistible to them.

Unfortunately the dream vacation descends into a brutal game of survival. The couples are pitched against a malevolent force that's always one step ahead. Can they escape the nightmare, or are they destined to spend the rest of their lives on the run trapped in each other’s bodies?

TV Presenter JULIETTE FOSTER: Chilling amounts of gore and explosions of Armageddon proportions give the story the adrenalin-coated rush of a Grand Theft Auto game. Yet there’s also a quasi gallows humour running through the narrative. It’s Milla who really stands out. She’s a woman of action, the shining light in the darkness, which is why her anger is palpable when a shocking plot twist exposes a terrible betrayal. Yet Milla’s integrity is a contradiction. By rights, it shouldn’t exist in a world that disparages decency, yet somehow it stays intact.
