Adelaide Real Estate Gets It’s Own Film
The Adelaide real estate scene is about to be cast under the spotlight, thanks to the release of ‘A month of Sundays’ starring Anthony LaPaglia.
Premiering on April 28th, director Matthew Saville’s film follows the life of the generally unenthused middle-aged real estate agent, Frank Mollard (LaPaglia), as he works in Adelaide, while experiencing family regrets and enduring somewhat of a midlife crisis.
Logies Hall of Famer John Clarke plays LaPaglia’s boss and gives a hilarious rendition of every relic agent who needs to catch up with the rest of the world. Adding some hometown flavour, look out for local agent and ‘Golden Gavel’ winner Phil Harris (Harris Real Estate) making a cameo appearance in the movie as an auctioneer.
Reviews have been less than stellar so far, however LaPaglia’s performance has been described as “strangely captivating…dry, funny and unpretentious” (The Guardian) and the film is praised for its cinematography and charm.
‘A month of Sundays’ will doubtless carry some extra relevance for those working in the industry, so be sure to check it out and make up your own mind.
