When critically acclaimed filmmaker Rachel Ward gets behind the camera, you know you’re going to get a quality film.
Going by the first trailer for Ward’s new film, Palm Beach, it looks like she’s delivered just that.
Palm Beach is a drama/comedy about a group of lifelong friends reuniting to celebrate a special birthday, with Sydney’s iconic Palm Beach providing a stunning backdrop for the unfolding drama.
The good times roll, with loads of laughter, lavish meals, flowing wine and fantastic music, but slowly tensions mount and deep secrets arise.
Directed by Ward and celebrating a lineup of both Australian and International stars, Bryan Brown, Greta Scacchi, Sam Neill, Jacqueline Mackenzie, Heather Mitchell, and Academy Award Nominee Richard E Grant.
“As Richard E. Grant said to me, ‘No one is untouched.’ And for sure the characters in Palm Beach reflect this statement only too well,” Bryan Brown told Cinema Australia. “It will be a buzz to get Palm Beach to Australian audiences this year. Five years in the making, a sensational location, terrific cast and Rachel Ward directing, and a soundtrack to knock your socks off. We reckon we’re in with a chance. Fun and heart and family and friends. Watch out.”
Palm Beach is in cinemas July.
