We love bringing new Australian films to you and we take a risk with them like no other fest in the country.
Twenty-five-year-old Loz (Sarah Gaul, On The Fringe) could have a promising career as a playwright ahead of her. But her artistic ambitions have stalled, her friendships periodically strained, and her love life has been non-existent for too long. Meanwhile everybody around her seem to be more successful in relationships, in work, even in sex. And then she meets Dave (Marshall Campbell).
There’s a post-mumblecore sense of immediacy to Hot Mess, a well scripted, low budget debut from Coleman. Meanwhile award-winning musical comedienne Gaul delivers a pitch perfect turn, creating a fully believable, and recognisable, character in Loz.
Screens with the short film My Ghoul.
