Agnes, Maude & Pearly Too

Australia, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Fiction)

Director: Erica Glynn

On this day, in loving memory of Pearly, Agnes and Maude play a game on Pearly's favourite poker machine. But when they hit the jackpot, money isn't the only thing that comes spilling out. The gaudy familiarity of the local RSL belies the complex past that is unravelled over a few quick drinks in memory of a dear friend.
