Actress Libby Munro stars in landmark Aussie film
EVENT Cinemas Noosa will hold a special screening of Eight on Monday, November 7, at 6.30pm.
Directed by Peter Blackburn, Eight stars Queenslander Libby Munro (Disgraced, Grounded, Venus In Fur).
The film centres on Sarah Prentice, who has lived in her house for the past two years and her fear of going outside has crippled her ability to interact with the outside world.
She struggles through the everyday processes of life as she has an uncontrollable Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Her life is focused on the simple process of getting ready for work.
For the everyday person, it's as simple as getting up and getting dressed but for Sarah, it's a marathon of emotions.
This is a landmark Australian work, filmed in one continuous shot and featuring Australia's next big export.
General admission is $20.
