The new highly acclaimed film Looking For Grace from the multi-award-winning Director, Sue Brooks will be screening at The Capri Theatre 4.00 pm on Australia Day, Tuesday, 26th January 2016.
Brooks, Director of Japanese Story and Road To Nhill has created a movie that is intimate, funny and profoundly moving story about an exasperated mum (Radha Mitchell) and dad (Richard Roxburgh) who with the aid of a private detective (Terry Norris) go searching for their rebellious 16-year-old Grace (Odessa Young). During their journey from Perth to the WA Wheatbelt the parents must deal with their true feelings for one another and their daughter.
With a fine balance of humour and darkness Looking For Grace is a beautiful, bold and definitely Australian story revealing how precious life is, how things can change so quickly and how we may need to deal with the consequences of our actions.

Seen in the Adelaide Film Festival. A thoroughly mature Australian film at last: highly entertaining while dealing with things that matter. Wonderful cast play beautifully together. Young Odessa has appeal and talent, at least in the hands of one of Australia's best directors. Fast moving, even thrilling.
