Radiance is a universal story about grief, celebration and reconciliation, screening at Riverside Theatres on Monday 6th May as a part of the Screen Café 2013 series.
Documentary film-maker Rachel Perkins directed this Australian drama, scripted by Louis Nowra from his own play about three sisters who reunite at the family home during the 24 hours following their mother’s funeral – the youngest sister, man-hungry Nona (Deborah Mailman) and lonely, bitter Mae (Trisha Morton-Thomas), who resents the success of the oldest sister, Cressy (Rachael Maza). When the three learn the family home will be reclaimed by the owner and their mother’s lover, they are forced to take drastic measures. Winner of numerous film awards including Canberra International Film Festival Audience Award and Melbourne International Film Festival Most Popular Feature Film, Radiance is a perfect blend of laughter and tears.
