NEXT FILM NIGHT Saturday 8th December 10-30am/6pm /8-15pm
First screening of a brand new comedy from Australia
'The Merger' (M) Comedy
MINCE PIES/ MULLED WINE/ & MOVIE
FILM SYNOPSIS If you like films in the tradition of The Castle and Ali’s Wedding, then you will like one of Australia’s most popular comedians, Damian Callinan adaptation of this entertaining and topical stage play, 'The Merger' on the big screen!
Bodgy Creek is a struggling town. The drought won’t let up, jobs are scarce after the mill was shut down, and the footy team looks like it will have to merge with another club or fold. Living a hermit-like existence on the town’s fringe, former football star turned ‘Town Killer’ Troy Carrington (Damian Callinan), is coaxed into rescuing the team after striking up an unlikely friendship with young Neil (Raffety Grierson) who is struggling with the recent loss of his father.
Teaming up with Neil’s mum Angie (Kate Mulvany, The Great Gatsby) who runs a nearby refugee support centre, they unite to recruit the new arrivals to save the team and take the community on a journey of change. But for some, like Neil’s grandfather and Club President, Bull (fan-favourite, John Howard, SeaChange) and ‘star’ player Carpet Burn (Angus McLaren, Hotel Mumbai), it’s more change than they’re willing to take on.
The Merger is a good-natured underdog sports story that wears its big heart on its guernsey sleeve, a charismatic comedy that is probably the first great film about Australian Football. For a film about Australians learning to come together, it’s equally about them learning to let go, whether it be racial prejudices, burdens of past traumas, generational conflicts, grief The script deftly balances the comedy with the drama and despite its broad nature, it never softens the back-stories of the refugees who make-up their eccentric but devoted sports squad. The necessary tonal shifts are handled excellently, especially with how dark it gets at times – this is the Full Monty for the Footy field.
With a winning cast including Penny Cook (A Country Practice), Nick Cody (Please Like Me), Zenia Starr (Hotel Mumbai), Aaron Gocs, Sahil Saluja (Tomorrow, When the War Began), Ben Knight (The Warriors), Stephen Hunter (The Hobbit) and Fayssal Bazzi(Peter Rabbit), The Merger is a hilarious and heart-felt comedy from the team who brought you Backyard Ashes.
