The Plumber, an Australian film by director Peter Weir, is an exploration of different characters from diverse backgrounds thrown together in an awkward and challenging situation. It manages to play on audience’s biases about the working class. The director succeeds in is giving us is a Hitchcockian exploration of clashing socio-educational-economical forces, and straddles the line between value judgement and simple interpersonal experiment.
