The highly anticipated hometown debut – after its premiere at Cinequest Film Fest – of this authentic depiction of suburban angst and the struggles of young, post-Uni Australians.
Presented as part of the 2019 Sydney Film Festival
Set among the red roofs and concrete pools of Sydney’s suburbs, the staunchly DIY Suburban Wildlife introduces writer/director Imogen McCluskey, her team of talented co-creators and an ensemble cast that brings to life the story’s protagonists. During the last week of a long, hazy summer, four friends take stock of their lives before the “mother” of the group, Louise, relocates to London. As the reality of post-university life sets in, the once tight-knit group fractures. Nina grapples with her sexual identity, Alice struggles to lower her defences and Kane crumbles under the weight of his friends’ expectations. Is their friendship strong enough to survive the next phase of their lives?
Running Time: 1 h 30 Minutes
Directed by Imogen McCluskey
