Fresh from its stint at the Venice and Toronto film festivals, Australian film, Looking for Grace, opens nationally on Australia Day.
Following the story of the family as they try to ride the rollercoaster of life, with all its ups and downs, Looking for Grace stars the Australian treasure Richard Roxburgh, known for his work in Rake and Moulin Rouge! Radha Mitchell co-stars as well as talented new comer, Odessa Young, who previously starred in The Daughter, presented at the Sydney Film Festival 2015.
Shot on location in Western Australia, boasts Brooks’ trademark sense of character, acerbic humour and eye for the hypnotic rhythms of Australia’s regional landscapes.
Director Sue Brooks is no stranger to Australian cinema, with her picture Road to Nhill staying in Australian cinemas for over 9 months. She also directed and co-produced the feature Japanese Story, which screened as an Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival, and won 8 AFI (now AACTA) awards including Best Picture and Best Director.
To celebrate the release for Looking for Grace, Sue Brooks and Richard Roxburgh will host two events on Monday 25th January. At the Chauvel Cinema, Paddington, there will be a 630 p.m. screening followed by a Q and A with Richard Roxburgh and Sue Brooks, being lead by the Australian grand dame of cinema, Margaret Pomeranz.
