Screening at VFF12: Closing Night Feature: “A Few Best Men”

Our closing night feature, A Few Best Men, has played internationally and is now coming to the Valley.  It’s hard to top what one reviewer wrote about it:

“A sheep in drag, a runaway floral arrangement and Olivia Newton John as you’ve never seen her before are some of the memorable moments of this riotous comedy in which the humour varies from the outrageous to the ridiculous.  Scripted by Death at a Funeral’s Dean Craig, A Few Best Men cleverly combines its culture clash and buddy themes with a wild tale embracing family secrets, a drug deal gone wrong and a romantic wedding filled with hilarious mishaps.”

“Directed by Stephan Elliott (“The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert”) with his indefatigable joie de vivre and wicked sense of humour, the film is a sure fix if you need a laugh. It’s a perfect marriage of British and Australian humour that fuses into its own form. The refined, the raucous and the rip-roaringly rude collide in 97 minutes of sparkling mayhem.”

Co-produced by VFF alum Laurence Malkin, the cast includes Xavier Samuel, Laura Brent, Kris Marshall, Rebel Wilson, and, yes, Olivia Newton-John.

Come for the fun and stay for the awards.  After the 5:00 screening, we’ll relocate to nearby Gallery 800 for our closing night awards announcement and party.  See you there!
