2010 USA-AUSTRALIA FILM SHOWCASE presents ACCIDENTS HAPPEN

Synopsis:

MONDAY, JULY 19TH AT 7PM

2010 USA-AUSTRALIA FILM SHOWCASE presents ACCIDENTS HAPPEN
Dir. Andrew Lancaster
2009, 92 mins

ACCIDENTS HAPPEN, directed by Andrew Lancaster, is a wickedly funny and surprisingly moving fable of family, fate, and misfortune in American suburbia. The manicured lawns of 1980's New England imply an order that simply doesn't exist for the Conway family, headed by razor-tongued Gloria. Youngest song Billy has been a witness to a series of tragic accidents, including one that fractured his whole family. Always the good boy, Billy takes up with the neighbourhood troublemaker in acts of delicious delinquency in a world already spinning out of control. The ensuring collision of guilt, truth, and self discovery may be just what his family need to move on.

ACCIDENTS HAPPEN stars Academy Award winner Geena Davis as Gloria Conway and introduces Harrison Gilbertson as her teenage son Billy.

The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in the US, and in the Sydney Film Festival in Australia.
