FILM: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTS TONI ERDMANN - FREE SCREENING
11 Mar 2017 | 11.00am - 2.00pm
This event has now passed - see upcoming film events here.
Practical joker Winfried decides to surprise his daughter Ines with a visit - an awkward move because serious career woman Ines is working on an important project. The geographical change doesn’t help the two to see more eye to eye - nor do Winifried's corny pranks.
What’s worse are his little jabs at her routine lifestyle of long meetings, hotel bars and performance reports. Father and daughter reach an impasse, and Winfried agrees to return home to Germany. Enter flashy ‘Toni Erdmann’, Winfried’s smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach.
As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.
With support from Liverpool City Council, this is a FREE SCREENING. Bookings are essential - please call or email the box office at 02 9824 1121 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
