SUMMER CODA

Australia / USA, 2010 (MIFF 2010, Homegrown)

Director: Richard Gray

Closure is just the beginning.

The action of this brand new Australian drama centres around the return of Heidi (Rachel Taylor) to Australia in search of family and friends. With only a violin and little cash she ends up catching the attention of a handsome farmer (Alex Dimitriades) who takes her home to his orange grove.

It's picking season and a cast of colourful characters, including a deluded Casanova (Angus Sampson), a handsome prankster (Nathan Phillips) and a feisty young mother-hen (Cassandra Magrath) provide Heidi with some necessary distraction as she attempts to work through her feelings about the new man in her life.

Filmed amid the sun-drenched citrus groves of Mildura, this debut feature from Richard Gray also features performances from Susie Porter and Jackie Weaver.
