Sydney Readers! Win Tickets to an Advance Screening of The BBQ!
Shane Jacobson, whose box office hits include Oddball and Kenny, and Magda Szubanski, one of Australia’s favourite comic actresses (Babe, Kath & Kim), share the screen with celebrity chef Manu Feildel (MKR) in his first acting role and RockWiz’s Julia Zemiro. Director is Stephen Amis (The 25th Reich, The Real Thing) with producers Lynne Wilson, Tait Brady, Deb Fryers and Amis. The film also stars Nicholas Hammond, still remembered for his youthful role in The Sound of Music, and introduces young Albury-born actor Frederick Simpson in his first film role.
A gentle comic fable about family, food and fulfilling your potential, The BBQ follows laid-back suburban everyman Darren “Dazza” Cook (Jacobson), who loves to entertain his friends and neighbours with his weekly backyard barbecues. Dazza has also inherited a dubious family history linked to explorer Captain James Cook. While his 12-year-old son, Jayden, is challenged to prove this ancestral link, Dazza takes his passion for the barbecue out of the backyard and into the international arena.We have five double passes to a special preview screening of BBQ introduced by Shane and Manu at Sydney’s Hoyts Entertainment Quarter on Thursday, January 18, to give away. To be in the running, email email@example.com, with BBQ GIVEAWAY in the subject line and tell us your favourite thing to cook on the grill. Entries close on January 17, 2018.
