About the film:
Evelyn (Melissa George), a burlesque queen, bewitches single dad Al (Ewen Leslie) and his teenage son, Fin (Ed Oxenbould) with her zest for life. When father and son discover they are competing for the affections of the same woman, old wounds are reopened over the death of Fin’s mother. Through the vivacious Evelyn, Fin learns the power of forgiveness and relinquishes his goddess in return for a family. In this seductive and heart-warming story, both men will discover the power of selfless love.
Reviews:
"one of the most eye-catching and beautiful Australian films I have seen in some time” (FilmInk)
"Priscilla Cameron has crafted an emotional, stylised and slightly fantastical story about three people’s relationship with love, loss and each other" (Make The Switch)
"visually rich and intensely styled drama that shimmers with stagey, hipster glamour" (The Guardian)
