Event description

Description

THE BOYS are back in town.

20 years since its release, Rowan Woods' iconic Australian film about toxic masculinity is sadly still as timely as it ever was.

Brett Sprague (David Wenham) returns to his family home after twelve months in jail. Things have change while he has been away - his brother Glenn has moved out with his girlfriend Jackie, younger brother Stevie’s pregnant girlfriend Nola now lives with the family, and his mother Sandra has taken on a Maori drifter. Re-united with his brothers, Brett uses his first day back to restore order…

Winner of 4 AFI awards and In Competition at the Berlin Film Festival in 1998, THE BOYS is a powerful and disturbing portrait of three brothers and the women in their lives.

With dreamlike cinematography and a hunting score by Australian experimental jazz group The Necks, THE BOYS is one outer-suburban nightmare not to be missed.

As time contorts, the walls draw in towards a conclusion we know is coming, and the women in the film know they can’t escape. Yet the film’s remarkable power lies in its movement towards a moment that never arrives because it’s always arriving, time after time, blow after blow.” - The Monthly

Tickets $10. Doors open 6pm. Film at 6:30pm.
