THE PRETEND ONE
THE PRETEND ONE + Q&A
Fantasy/Drama | Australia | World Premiere
Roger (Aussie screen legend David Field) and his daughter Charlie (Geraldine Hakewill) live on their small cotton farm in Western Queensland. Despite being well into her twenties, Charlie still maintains a relationship with her childhood imaginary friend, Hugo (Michael Whalley). All is well until Charlie starts to fall for a new guy in town and Hugo’s very existence is threatened.
Gorgeously filmed in Central Queensland this defiantly strange yet oddly charming tale plays like a romantic spin on Drop Dead Fred. The debut feature from director Tony Prescott is an exciting and fresh look at the power of imagination in a starkly beautiful rural Australian town.
Join co-writer/director Tony Prescott and cast/crew on the red carpet and for a Q&A after the film.
