GALORE

Australia, 2013 (MIFF 2013, Australian Showcase,MIFF Premiere Fund)

Director: Rhys Graham

GALORE

As four teens navigate the flashpoint of adolescent relationships, their lives will be forever scarred by a tragedy that engulfs their city.

Teenagers Billie and Laura, who live in Canberra's suburban outskirts, are best friends and share everything – even, as it turns out, Laura's boyfriend Danny, although Laura doesn't know this. During the summer of Canberra's bushfires, Billie's mother welcomes the troubled Isaac into her care and his presence causes disarray in the girls' friendship: Laura finds herself drawn to the gentle but intense newcomer while Billie's unpredictable ways threaten self-destruction.

Written and directed by Rhys Graham (Words from the City, MIFF 2007), Galore is an intensely personal film, starring Ashleigh Cummings (Tomorrow When the War Began), Lily Sullivan (Mental, MIFF 2012), Maya Stange (Garage Days), Oscar Redding (Van Diemen's Land), Toby Wallace and newcomer Aliki Matangi. World Premiering at MIFF, Galore was produced by Philippa Campey (Bastardy, MIFF 2008) and is supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund.
