Finally, a film after my namesake! It’s just unfortunate that it has come in the form of a devastatingly poignant film. Gaining comparions to films like Spielberg’s War Horse (2011) and, perhaps more obviously, Bresson’s Au Hasard Balthazar (1966), Eo still stands out from the herd as its own four hooves. Bringing the gap between Fellini fever dream and David Attenborough Documentary, director Jerry Skolimowski makes a beautifully bold and brilliant film that doesn’t shy away from its subject matter. Eo is a unique film experience that begs the question as old as time; who is more animalistic, animals or the human race? EO


It’s hard to put into words the brilliant range of emotions that Of An Age conjures up and how relatable it can be in various facets. For some, the films central queer theme of two gay men coming to grips with their sexuality at the turn of the century will no doubt be close to home. For others, it will be the racial prejudice that the lead character Kol (played stunngly by Elias Anton) experiences having unfortunate familiarity. And for others, the roller-coaster ride that is love and innocence of youth will pull at their heart strings. If you’re looking for the latest Australian classic, then you are looking in the right place with Of An Age. Director Goran Stolevski is destined for great things if the films he makes can continue to reach this level of excellence. This Australian drama is a film you will fall in love with, no matter what age you are! EO
