The King is Dead!

Director: Rolf de Heer

Starring: Dan Wyllie, Bojana Novakovic, Gary Waddell, Luke Ford, Anthony Hayes

This is a suburban dark comedy with Max (Dan Wyllie) and Therese (Bojana Novakovic) who have just bought a new house. On one side is the perfect neighbours and on the other, a ne'er -do-well who lives in a rundown hovel. King (Gary Waddell) is a simple man and Max and Therese suspect is a drug addict. He friends Shrek (Luke Ford) and Escobar (Anthony Hayes) are regular visitors and regularly party to the early hours. No matter the polite reasoning all seems to fail until eventually the likeable Max and Therese take matters into their own hands. Good performances throughout in this little Australian movie and well worth a watch.
