Ruben Guthrie is the story of a man who has everything but stands to lose it all

Sporting a great cast, Ruben Guthrie is the story of an advertising executive who seemingly has everything - a party boy lifestyle, a model fiancée and a house on the water. He reaches a turning point when, after some drunken antics, he lands at the bottom of a swimming pool and is lucky to survive. His mum hits the panic button. His fiancée leaves him, but gives him one last chance: she'll take him back if Ruben can do one year without a drink.

Ruben Guthrie is the story of one man not only battling the bottle, but the city that won't let him put it down.

The cast includes Patrick Brammall (Offspring, Upper Middle Bogan) as Ruben, Alex Dimitriades (The Heartbreak Kid, Head On) as Ruben's 'wingman' Damian, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) as the ultimatum issuing girlfriend Zoya, and cinematic stalwarts Jack Thompson and Robyn Nevin as Ruben's parents.
