Judy & Punch (15)
Dir: Mirrah Foulkes
Cast: Damon Herriman, Mia Wasikowska, Benedict Hardie
Aus, 2019, 106 mins
In the unconventional town of Seaside, two famous puppeteers, Judy & Punch, try to resurrect their marionette show. The show is a hit due to Judy’s superior puppetry – but Punch’s driving ambition and penchant for drink lead to an ill-fated turn of events that Judy must avenge. An inventive, playful and defiantly feminist live-action take on the famous (and famously misogynistic) 16th century puppet show.
