Based on a true-life story, Mr Reliable (also known as My Entire Life) is a hostage story with a twist, exploring a unique and calamitous incident of suburban Aussie mayhem, from the AFI Award-winning director of Malcolm and Matching Jack. During a scorching 1968 Sydney summer, convicted car thief Wally Mellish (Colin Friels,Malcolm) attempts to turn over a new leaf and bask in the fulfilment of family, despite a changing social landscape.
Out of prison and in love with single mum Beryl (Jacqueline Mckenzie, Romper Stomper) the two shack up to enjoy the best of family life in a quiet suburban street. But it is not long before Wally resorts to his old-fashioned ways and trips up on a minor misdemeanour that soon becomes blown out of proportion. Not wishing to return to prison, Wally takes the matter into his own two hands, raising a shotgun to the surrounding police, inadvertently beginning a household siege of outrageous scope.

A madcap tale of misunderstandings, nosy neighbours, underdogs and a media circus gone wild, Mr Reliable also features Susie Porter, Jonathan Hardy and Barry Otto.
