Dealing With Destiny, directed by Colm O'Murchu (The Makeover, Central Station Records: the History of Dance Music in Australia), is a brand new Australian comedy, featuring a bevy of local, promising actors.
It's the last day of University term and planning of the traditional pranks is well underway between good buddies Blake, Lloyd, Vinnie, and Ricardo. Blake and Lloyd are two brilliant physics students who have always worked closely together as a partnership, but the stakes are much higher today as only one of them can top the year and win the University medal, and the somewhat sinister Professor Sorvad plots to influence the outcome.
Vinnie is called upon to drive his beloved Betsy, a 1969 canary yellow fiat sport coupe, at high speed through the campus on a desperate mission against time. Ricardo falls lustfully in love with the sexy gym girl, but she has a secret life to reveal.
Lloyd has a new girlfriend, the cosmically conscious, tree-hugging, dolphin-loving Zara. Zara uses her self-styled mystical powers to read the tarot cards & to predict the future events of the day, and amazingly it all seems to be coming perfectly true – or does it ?
Starring Luke Arnold (Broken Hill, Panic at Rock Island, Rush), Clayton Moss (All Saints, Rescue Special Ops), Roger Sciberras (Fools Gold, Gangs of Oz) and Steve Maresca (Suing the Devil), the film was shot on location in Sydney.
The PG-rated comedy opens on September 1.
