Premiering at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, Cherie Nowlan's whimsical comedy puts fun in family dysfunction.
Brenda Blethyn delivers a tour-de-force performance as a middle-aged vaudevillian whose day and audience are both in decline. Added to this she has a failed marriage, an oily paramour and two sons who are becoming too interested in girls.
As an awkward teenage romance develops with the appealing Jill (Emma Booth), eldest son Tim (Khan Chittenden) finds that his attempts at emancipation threaten to shatter the fragile family dynamic.
Underpinned by Nowlan's measured direction, the exhilarating Clubland
boasts slick production values, generous characterisation and great performances. Prepare to be entertained! Presented with the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance and Film Victoria.
