Cinefans presents The Babadook in Busselton

Interview Essie Noah

The Babadook is a psychological thriller starring Essie Davis (The Matrix, Girl With a Pearl Earring, Australia) as a single mother plagued by the violent death of her husband. When a disturbing storybook called ‘Mr. Babadook’ turns up at her house she is forced to battle with her son’s deep seated fear of a monster. Soon she discovers a sinister presence all around her…

Cinefans presents The Babadook at Orana Cinemas, Busselton on the 26th of June, a not for profit initiative by CinefestOZ. Cinefans is much like a movie club, where people who enjoy watching good film can attend special screenings of quality independent Australian or French film outside of the CinéfestOZ festival week (20-24th August, 2014).

Tickets are $25, including pre-screening drinks & nibbles, from 5:30pm at Orana. First time writer-director Jennifer Kent received rave reviews after screening as part of the Official Selection for Sundance Festival in January this year.

You can read the Cinema Australia review for the film here and our interview with director Jennifer Kent here.
