Joe Cinque’s Consolation screens daily from OCTOBER 13th

Anu Singh was an Australian National University law student in the late 1990s when she started complaining about her health and talking about suicide to her friends. Her worried boyfriend, Joe Cinque, tried to help but his efforts only seemed to make her mental state worse. Anu’s plans grew darker and more sinister, and she started hinting she would take someone with her. Her best friend, Madhavi Rao, seemed powerless – or unwilling – to stop her. Finally, Anu staged a farewell dinner party, preparing her guests, Rohypnol and two lethal doses of heroin. After all the warnings, who would step forward to stop her?

Based on Helen Garner’s multi-award-winning book Joe Cinque’s Consolation: A True Story of Death, Grief and the Law, and starring Maggie Naouri and Jerome Meyer, with Gia Carides and Tony Nikolakopoulos as Joe’s parents, and bolstered by pitch-perfect period details and a soundtrack to match, the highly anticipated Joe Cinque’s Consolation is sure to be one of this year’s most talked about films.
