"A priori, audience can immediately discern the kindred spirit between Lynn and Bank, with a possible if trite romantic subplot in the offing, however, the screenplay doesn't fall for the easy tropes, in lieu it crisscrosses their respective personality modulations, Lynn, who appears none-too-hesitant in consenting to the scam in exchange of material gain at the first place, has to wrestle with her swelling guilty conscience when their scheme goes somehow amiss in Sydney, and finally opts for a clean conscience above all things, whereas Bank, who starts as a righteous wonk, and inadvertently sabotages Lynn's chance of studying abroad, must undergo a diametrical path on the moral compass when the film reaches its ending, not entirely unsympathetic, but Bank's descending into the dark side also obviates a lovey-dovey cop-out and is instrumental to the film's reflection of a society corrupted with materialism, classism and a porous education system, where unspoken rules reside and marks is the only criterion to decide a student's future."
