This debut feature from Cherie Nowlan paints a painfully funny portrait of the compromises we make on the way to finding true love and happiness. Told mainly through flashback, the film seamlessly slides between Guy’s past with the exuberant Jenny and his impending future with the pragmatic Lizzie.
It’s a testament to the performances of the two female leads and the sharp script from Alexandra Long that these two women don’t become mere cyphers for our male hero’s mini mid-life crisis.
Cate Blanchett went on to win an AFI award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in this film.
Thank God He Met Lizzie
20 Feb - 27 Feb
Richard Roxburgh leads a stellar cast in this bittersweet tale of a man lamenting a past love on the eve of his wedding. Guy is preparing to marry Lizzie (Cate Blanchett), a successful and beautiful woman whom he appears to love but the impending wedding brings with it memories of his ex Jenny (Francis O’Connor), a free spirited woman he lived with throughout his 20s.
Cate Blanchett is also the star of Manifesto, our Julian Rosefeldt exhibition which questions the role of the artist in today's society.
