Seriously Red: Australia Day screening
January 28, 2023 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
The London Australian Film Society kicks off its 50th anniversary this year by returning to The Garden Cinema for their first screening of 2023! Come along to catch the glittering new Aussie comedy, Seriously Red, on the big screen.
The dramatic feature debut of Gracie Otto (The Last Impresario, Under the Volcano, Netflix’s Heartbreak High reboot), is a riotously camp throwback to 90s Oz classics – think: Priscilla, Muriel’s Wedding and Strictly Ballroom. It is also a glorious tribute to all things Dolly Parton, who gave the film her seal of approval via Twitter last year:
“I just loved Seriously Red! The film is a wonderful tribute to being the best version of yourself. Y’all go see it now!”
The film’s writer, Krew Boylan, stars as Red, who embraces her passion for all things Dolly after losing her job in real estate. Her quest to become the world’s best Dolly Parton impersonator leads to encounters with a range of other tribute acts, from Elvis (a brilliant Rose Byrne) to Kenny Rogers (Daniel Webber), and a discovery that sometimes the best way to find yourself is to pretend to be someone else.
Don’t miss your only chance to catch Seriously Red on the big screen, not least because there are lots of extra treats planned, plus the LAFS’s famous raffle and pop-up Aussie snack shop.
With thanks to Signature Entertainment and Dollhouse Pictures.
Please note: LAFS recognises that January 26 represents a Day of Mourning for many people, and have held our ‘Australia Day’ screenings on an alternate date since 2018.
