The Price of Milk is a 2000 film from New Zealand that tells the story of marriage-anxious Lucinda (Danielle Cormack) in her engagement to farmer Rob (Karl Urban). Lucinda is terrified of losing the excitement in their relationship when they finally tie the knot, and thus goes through a series of actions to anger him. Lucinda believes that if she upsets Rob, then their relationship will stay fresh. When a spat with a local woman named Auntie (Rangi Motu) leads to a stolen quilt, Lucinda does anything she can to get it back. Unfortunately, trading all of Rob's cows for the quilt sends him into more of a rage than she anticipated. Lucinda is then left alone to consider her actions while Rob disappears for days right before the wedding. Also starring Willa O'Neill and Michael Lawrence The Price of Milk was written and directed by Harry Sinclair.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times John Anderson

    It's weird, wacky territory you enter in The Price of Milk, and we don't just mean New Zealand.

  • 70

    Variety David Rooney

    Full of surreal occurrences and bizarre, sometimes overly precious humor that may make it too rarefied an exercise for wide acceptance.

  • 30

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    The guiding philosophy of The Price of Milk seems to be that if you throw something on the screen and call it a fairy tale, it has to mean something. But it doesn't.
