HAPPY NEW YEAR, COLIN BURSTEAD (15+)

Australian Premiere

Prolific UK filmmaker Ben Wheatley’s latest work is a triumphant change of pace – a simple ensemble tragicomedy chronicling a family reunion on New Year’s Eve. In a bid to bring the family together, Colin (played by Wheatley regular Neil Maskell) has hired a grand seaside mansion and invited the entire clan for an end of year celebration.
As parents and siblings slowly arrive grumbling long-held resentments quickly come to the surface and when David, the little-seen black sheep of the family, enters the picture, tensions reach a boiling point. Filled with acidic dialogue and naturalistic performances, this dynamic little drama is a caustic delight.

“a nerve-raddled family reunion comedy… one of Wheatley’s best, most fluid films” Variety
