Australian film ZELOS has received a release date of 8 September 2017 in cinemas nationally. This follows a debut at the Great Barrier Reef Film Festival on the 7 September. Athabasca Film has also released a trailer and poster for the feature, both of which are embedded below.
From director Jo-Anne Brechin and writer Claire Harris, the film focuses on thirty-something Bernard, who has his seemingly idyllic life turned upside-down when his girlfriend Sarah returns home from overseas and admits to a holiday romance. In an attempt to save the relationship, Sarah suggests Bernard should do this same.
Earlier this week, ZELOS was named one of the 35 films eligible for voting in the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA), alongside such respectable company as Lion, Berlin Syndrome, and Ali’s Wedding.
Taking its title from the word for ‘zeal’ and ‘passion,’ but also jealousy and suspicion, ZELOS stars Shannon Ashlyn, Ben Mortley, Leigh Scully, Ainslie McGlynn and Jeanie Drynan. A full list of cinemas screening the film will be published next week.
