About Road to Nhill
A comedy of errors that might just take you on a trip down memory lane, Road to Nhill is a warm, hilarious and all Australian feature that is wonderfully scripted and acted. Written, produced and directed by three Melbournites, the film boasts the biggest line up ever to be brought together in an Australian feature film (including a cameo by the father of the Australian film industry revival, Phillip Adams in a whimsically ironic role).
Set in the town of Pyramid Hill (VIC) the film follows the search for a car-load of lady-bowlers who are involved in an accident on their way back from a tournament at Quambotook. Unsure exactly what road the accident happened on, their husbands go in all directions, as an ambulance gets lost and a local policeman misses the scene altogether. A film about much more than the plotline suggests, the film expertly twists movie-goers’ expectations.
In the same comic tradition as ‘The Castle,’ Road to Nhill will have you in stitches long after the credits have finished rolling.
Trivia bite: Road to Nhill won the “Golden Alexander” (first prize) for Best Feature-Length Film at The International Thessaloniki Film Festival (Greece)
