Alex and Eve

Saturday night feature, romantic cross-cultural comedy

Details: Alex and Eve (M) 90min comedy, screening Saturday, 11 June 9pm, following on from the Short Film program from 7.30pm, with a short break at 8.30pm with wine and nibbles available to purchase.

Dir: Peter Andrikidis. Writer: Alex Lycos. Starring: Andrea Demetriades, Richard Brancatisano, Ryan O’Kane.

A young Greek schoolteacher falls for a feisty Lebanese lawyer, immediately earning the disapproval of both families in this cross-cultural rom-com.

While not as over the top as Andrikidis’ previous effort, The Kings of Mykonos, this mines the same seam of brash humour and stereotypical, yet truthful, characterisation that Australian multicultural comedies seem to do so well.
