Update: preview screenings of Samson & Delilah are on this weekend in every state except for NSW. Check the film’s official website for details.
Although it is yet to be released, writer/director Warwick Thornton’s Australian drama Samson & Delilah has already been trumpeted as a huge success. Internet buzz surrounding the film has been circulating for months now, with anticipation mounting in the last week upon news that Samson and Delilah will screen in the Un Certain Regard category at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival. Last night veteran tag-team reviewers Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton awarded the film maximum points on ABC’s At the Movies, dishing out five healthy stars each, and expect many more great reviews to come. Samson and Delilah opens in select cinemas next week (May 7) and you can watch the trailer here.
