Book Week

November 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Australia

Directed by Heath Davis
Starring Alan Dukes

Filmed in the Blue Mountains, Book Week is a shaggy dark comedy about a disgraced novelist turned English teacher trying to find redemption.

For generations, dressing up for Book Week has been an Aussie school tradition. But for high-school English teacher Nicholas Cutler, it’s the week from hell. Once a literary enfant terrible, and now simply a terrible man, he’s now struggling to instil a love of reading in teenagers who’d rather toy with their phones and dress up as movie superheroes. Trying to roll with these bad new times, Nicholas has penned a trashy zombie story. He’s tantalisingly close to a literary comeback – but it’ll be at the expense of his students, colleagues and long-suffering family. Will this be the week Mr Cutler finally has people’s backs, not paperbacks?

Writer and director Heath Davis based this film on his own experiences as a teacher. Book Week offers a wry new comedy with a genial fondness for community – the kind you don’t always find in books.
