It was supposed to be a low-key dinner party…
After the recent death of her father, primary-school teacher Saskia has moved into a spacious warehouse apartment in Surry Hills. With a job she loves, a close circle of friends and an active sex life, Saskia is determined to embrace her independence with joy and gusto. To celebrate her thirty-third birthday she invites her closest pals for a low-key dinner party. But when her estranged little brother, Josh, turns up unannounced, a civilised affair spirals into debauchery and painful truths from the past burst to the surface.
Based on the acclaimed stage play, Thirty-Three is a story about family, marriage, grief, responsibility, friendship. Shot with a fly-on-the-wall cinematic eye, this is a jovial, frivolous and excruciatingly relatable experience, but also a reflection on how we adults can occasionally misbehave and unwittingly betray our own values.
