Good For Nothing Blues will have its world premiere in Perth next month.
Alexander Lorian’s WA-shot crime comedy follows Calvin and his group of dole-bludging friends who suddenly come into money when they win $200,000 on the lottery. Having money for the first time ever seems like the answer to their prayers, but soon enough their investments go astray and they end up stuck in a web of drugs, debt, gangs and cops.
“I’m really excited to premiere Good For Nothing Blues,” Lorian told Cinema Australia.
“I’ve received so much interest personally and everyone involved is saying the same. I really think the film we’ve got here is something unique and different. It’s a lot of fun and a bit emotional, but the character of the film is really something, and that’s why I’m more excited about it than any previous project I’ve directed.”
Good For Nothing Blues is the second feature film for Lorian following his 2017 debut, Subject 36. Lorian also recently worked as cinematographer on Isabella Jacqueline’s new feature film, Darkest Age.
Good For Nothing Blues is written and directed by Lorian and stars Cody Brown, Andrea Lim, Bryce Myles, Rhys Hyatt, Blake Del Popolo, Jimi Kilday, Carlos Sivalingam, James Broadhurst and James Hag. The film is produced by Elle Cahill.
Good For Nothing Blues will premiere at Luna Leederville on August 12. Tickets and details here.
