I've made it to my life's goal - the old age pension. Now I write for fun. Hope you enjoy reading.
It’s the unexpected that changes our lives

The one and only opportunity you have to experience 'A Bun in the Oven' is on the closing night at the French Film Festival, Sunday 9 April, 2017. The celebrations for this tribute to maternal fulfilment commence with the Pre-Screening Party at 6.15pm before the delivery of the film at 7.00pm. The happy event is to occur at the Palace Barracks Cinema, 61 Petrie Terrace, City .

Get in now to make sure you don't miss out on this wonderful movie. You can obtain your tickets from here at a cost of:

General Admission: $35;
Palace Members' Club: $30; and
Alliance $30.

This delightful comedy was directed by Nadege Loiseau and stars, Karin Viard, Philippe Rebbot, Hélène Vincent and Manon Kneuse.

Can you conceive a better way to finish a festival than to welcome the delivery of a brand new bundle of joy? Unfortunately for Nicole, the reluctant 49-year-old mother-to-be, it's not the best time in her life to be pregenant.

In this hysterically funny and emotive debut feature about Nicole's life and problems she must now add this new baby into the mix. Her household is already bursting at the seams and she is completely overwhelmed and barely managing to keep everything together. She must deal with her eccentric elderly mother, her grown daughter and the daughter's partner, a pesky Canadian and her six-year old granddaughter. Finally, she must also see to her husband, an unemployed ex-gymnast.

Are you starting to get the picture yet? Nicole has some real problems and just when life couldn't get any more hectic, she finds out she is pregnant! Follow Nicole as she must take care of her dysfunctional household as she muddles through the increased demands of pregnancy. Then, watch as she learns, for the very first time how to sort out her own life.

In scene after scene you will end up labouring for breath as you split your sides laughing through this pure sparkling comedic gold.

This wonderful movie has been filmed in French with English subtitles.

Remember, though, the evening is not just about this fantastic movie. Your ticket also gives you access to the Pre-Screening party to be held in the foyer of the cinema where you will share the finest French gourmet wine and cheese with the other cinema buffs. All in all, the night will be a perfect conclusion to a wonderful and successful 2017 French Film Festival.
