Event Details

Ten years after writing and directing his debut feature film “Papadopoulos & Sons”, the visionary Marcus Markou is back with another indie movie, The Wife and Her House Husband”, winner for Best Feature Film at the British Urban Film Festival 2022.

This film is set to grace the screens at the 2023 British Film Festival, and it's proudly co-presented by the Greek Community of Melbourne (GCM).

This time around he’s made a serious and slightly self-conscious divorce drama. As their contentious divorce moves towards an end, Cassie (Laura Bayston) and Matthew (Laurence Spellman) receive a surprise reminder from their past - a letter they wrote to each other as young lovers, containing instructions for a potential future separation. The letter encourages them to create meaningful experiences that will allow them to part ways with love and not bitterness.

Over the course of four intense days, the couple struggle to reconcile their lingering feelings with the reality of their situation. As they reconnect, they must grapple with the question of whether they can truly move on from their painful past and build a future together.

An impressive piece of filmmaking, the sparse shooting aesthetic allows the raw emotion of the narrative to be the primary focus. Showcasing an honest, tender script navigating the highs and lows of married life, Marcus Markou crafts an engrossing and engaging drama fuelled by solid central performances.

Don't miss out the Q&A session with the director on Wednesday, 15th November at 7:00pm at Palace Cinema Como.
