Indian Movies is the selection of poems by on of Australia's most talented young pets. In it Jeri Kroll shows her versatility with styles demonstrating passion as well as craft. The collection opens with descriptive poems about places and seasons, then moves to the more volatile area of human relationships. Most of the book deals with ties that hold people together: romantic, familial, social. Poems about love and lust range from the analytic to the passionate, from the controlled to the vulnerable. Objective and subjective points of view come together in the final selection, "Indian Movies," where the poet explores her personal experience of India and her relatives there. She captures the exotic contrasts, the tragedy and comedy of the inexplicable country.
