:: Spotlight :: Bad Behaviour World Premiere

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

The Australian film ‘Bad Behaviour’ is an Official Selection and closing film for the 2010 Melbourne Underground Film Festival MUFF 2010. The film stars John Jarratt, Robert Coleby, Georgina Symes, Dwaine Stevenson, Jean Kittson, Roger Ward and Lindsay Farris. The film is written and directed by 21-year-old Joseph Sims.

Story: The weekend is about to kick off. With the ocean calm, the weather warm and the sun setting over the hills, two psychopathic siblings - Emma and Peterson, pit stop on their road trip of bloodshed at the sleepy beach-side town of Cecil Bay.

‘Bad Behaviour’ will have you on the precipice of intrigue as you are thrown into: Emma and Peterson’s encounter with their fierce predator and debt collector Voyte Parker, a cop confronting the people who murdered his son, and the day a man finds his wife is cheating on him. ‘Bad Behaviour’ joins the intersecting storylines of murderers, coppers, teachers and teenagers; exposing their eventual demise. This black comedy/neo-noir picture embodies the very same ‘cool’ of the beach side town it’s set in, providing you an eerie fantasy landscape characterized by a fusion of graphic violence and punchy dialogue.

The World Premiere will be held at Melbourne's Docklands on Saturday, August 28, 2010.
