Bonsai Films has dropped the first trailer for upcoming Australian black comedy, Book Week – arguably the year’s most outstanding Australian film.
Written and directed by Heath Davis (Broke, Locusts), Book Week stars Alan Dukes (Last Cab to Darwin), Rhys Muldoon (House Husbands), Airlie Dodds (Killing Ground), Rose Riley (The Death and Life of Otto Bloom) and AACTA award winner Susan Prior (The Rover).
“I’m so excited to share the movie with everyone after our fantastic sold out session at MIFF,” Davis told Cinema Australia.
“It’s a very funny film, which plays well to an audience so it really is a cinema experience. It’s also very timely and topical in its themes, which I think will resonate with everyone in some way shape or form. We don’t make films like this in Australia often, so it’s a real alternative to what’s out there at the moment.”
Book Week follows a cantankerous English teacher and disgraced author who must show he’s a changed man if his latest manuscript is to be published. But what promises to be the best week of his life professionally, spirals into seven days of hell personally.
Book Week had its world premiere to sold out screenings at Melbourne International Film Festival and will be screening at the Noosa International Film Festival before releasing nationally in cinemas on October 25, 2018.
