CLOSED: A Happy Event Giveaway


Courtesy of Umbrella Entertainment , Film Blerg is giving away ten double passes to see a preview of A HAPPY EVENT ahead of its release on 5 July, 2012. The preview screening will take place on Thursday 21st June at 6.30pm at Cinema Nova in Carlton.

Film Synopsis: An intimate view of motherhood, A Happy Event explores one of the most thrilling, painful, joyful and altogether life-altering experiences of effervescent young graduate student Barbara Dray (Louise Bourgoin).

Entrenched in the writing of her thesis and head-over-heels in love with her boyfriend Nicolas (Pio Marmaï, La délicatesse), life is good for Barbara. However, pregnancy threatens to upset universal order and Barbara faces a tidal wave of fear, excitement and trepidation, all the while absorbing the dizzying spin of heartfelt well-wishers and wayward advice-givers.

Riding the highs and lows, succumbing to the cravings, morning sickness, the ever-bulging body shape and feeling the pressure on her relationship, Barbara’s attempt to conform to the image of the happy expectant mother is a journey fraught with anxiety and humourous charm.

Adapted from bestselling author Eliette Abecassis’ 2005 autobiographical novel, writer/director Rémi Bezançon presents an eye-opening, heart-warming story of dedication and togetherness, proving that nothing can fully prepare you for bringing a new life into the world.
