Healing (M) with our own Hugo Weaving (and the eagles) this Sunday

healing-125This is a must see film, first of all for the eagles, who are as much the stars of this film as the actors. But it is not just the eagles. The film is set in a transitional centre where long term prisoners are expected to be eased into the outside world. Among the new intakes are Viktor Khadem, who has spent 18 years in prison for murder; Paul, a young kid with family issues; and Shane, a confused kid who acts as a go-between. All three are assigned to Officer Matt Perry, played by Hugo Weaving, who believes that something can be gained from working with the local Wildlife Sanctuary. The relationship with birds has a profound effect on some of the inmates. The performances are fabulous, particularly from Hugo Weaving and Andrew Payne, the bird handler. Don’t forget: this Sunday 19 October 7pm.
