the pretend one

Described as “perfect in every aspect” by our friends at Cinema Australia, The Pretend One is finally arriving on big screens around Australia for very special one-off screenings. This Melbourne screening will be followed by an informative Q&A with the star of the film Geraldine Hakewill.

Filled with great performances and plenty of heart, The Pretend One is a fantastic and idiosyncratic adult coming of age. Charlie (Geraldine Hakewill, currently starring in Miss Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries) and Hugo (Michael Whalley, Wanted) are aged in their 20s, live in a rural town in Central Queensland and have been best friends their whole lives. There’s just one thing – Hugo is Charlie’s imaginary friend.

Also starring Benedict Wall and Aussie legend David Field, Tony Prescott’s film is a great surprise bundle and absolutely guaranteed to please.
