JUDY & PUNCH
2019, 105 min, Dir: Mirrah Foulkes

Playing out like a twisted marriage between “Monty Python” and SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY, Australian actress Mirrah Foulkes’ feature directorial debut is a one-of-a-kind, anarchic pummeling of the senses in the best possible way. Judy (Mia Wasikowska) and her husband, Punch (Damon Herriman), are puppeteers in the town of Seaside. While Judy is the real talent, it’s Punch who receives the plaudits and spends his time getting endlessly drunk. When a domestic argument escalates into violence, Punch ends up killing Judy – or so he thinks. Soon, a righteously angry Judy is plotting revenge and no one in this hamlet marked by ugliness within and without will escape unscathed.
