Perth Festival 2020: Lotterywest Film Festival 5 Tips
It’s that time of the year again, time to dig out the diary and work out how to juggle all the things you want to see at this years Perth Festival. I usually start with the Lotterywest Films Program. So here are a few tips for you.
With another few months of movies ahead of us here are my top tips:
- Somerville Theatre
The home of the Lotterywest Film Festival, make sure you see at least one movie in this gorgeous setting. Summer in Perth isn’t summer without at least one night watching films under the stars.
2. Choose early
Grab a program and pick your movies early. The best ones always sell out really fast.
When self-destructive teenager Sam is suspended from boarding school he returns home to find his English grandmother, Ruth, has moved in. Ruth (Charlotte Rampling) is a feisty ex-war photographer with a lust for life and a love of the bottle. Their first meeting is awkward, their second violent, and things get worse when Sam finds himself stranded alone with this funny, rude, fearless and flirtatious woman who can drink him and his friends under the table. A battle of wills ensues which enables Sam to embrace life again, and Ruth to face her own mortality. Filmed in West Auckland, Kiwi Matthew Saville’s first feature length film is an entertaining yet unsettling family drama that breaks down generational boundaries with humour and poignancy.
4. How To Please A Woman
Fremantle life and some of Australia’s finest filmmaking talent are front and centre in this holiday world premiere. When her all-male housecleaning business spins out of control, a mature woman Sally Phillips) embraces her own desires to make a new life for herself. A beautifully handled comedy-drama that expertly balances intimacy and humour, How To Please A Woman takes a warm-hearted look at sexuality and vulnerability at all stages of life.
Jessica (Tilda Swinton), a Scottish botanist living in Bogotá, Colombia, wakes up one morning from the sound of a loud reverberating bang in her dream. Loud noises repeat at odd moments during her day, but only she can hear them. Determined to find out why, Jessica goes on a quest to the sound recording booths, university quarters and mountainous landscapes of Colombia, as the lines between past and future, reality and death, blur into one big bang itself. Unique, deeply mysterious and with a twist that will make you question everything. This film will only be available in cinemas and won’t be available for streaming.
Others that sounds interesting are: To Chiara; After Love; Compartment Number 6; and One Second.
