One of the best Australian films of recent times was Lantana – Ray Lawrence directing a stellar cast in a complex and compelling tale of mystery, lust and the search for something more. The film was based on a play by Andrew Bovell – Speaking In Tongues. That play opens in Cairns this Friday night at the Rondo Theatre
It’s a truly engaging story, weaving together separate but related threads and characters in an unusual series of coincidences – strangers draw close, while loved ones drift apart. Secrets, deceit, intrigue – all combine in a story that’s ultimately about what we yearn for, what we need, and sometimes can’t find. Speaking in Tongues runs at the Rondo till July 12th.
