An “epic female-driven vengeance story speaking volumes through its feminine inversion of the traditional hero's journey”, says Australian director Mirrah Foulkes of her first feature film, which premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. It is also, she adds, “bat-shit crazy and fun”. Set in a misnamed town of Seaside in the 17th Century, this ambitious and fiendishly comic fairytale for our times focuses on puppeteers Judy and Punch whose marionette theatre is the one vestige of civilisation in a town plagued by superstition and misogyny, where witch-hunts and stoning are prized entertainments. Once a master of his craft, Punch (Damon Herriman) is now a drunk. He fits right in to Seaside but it’s his wife, Judy (Mia Wasikowska) who has to carry the show. Finally, wronged once again, she exacts sweet revenge.
