Cedar Boys posterSo far 2009 has been littered with must-see Australian films and, ladies and gents, here is another one. Cedar Boys is a gripping crime-don’t-pay drug drama about two Lebanese-Australian Sydneysiders who happen across a massive bounty of ecstasy. Expect a review later in the week and, on Friday, my interview with up-n-comer lead actor Les Chantery.

To mark Cedar Boy’s theatrical release on July 30, Cinetology gives readers the chance to win one of 20 in-season double passes to see it.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

A young Lebanese-Australian panel-beater, struggling to realise his dreams, is offered a chance to set himself up for life. All he has to do is follow a plan to outsmart the cops and a gang of serious criminals. He wants the prize….but is he ready to pay the price? Cedar Boys is an authentic, compelling and adrenaline charged ride into the lives of young men of Middle Eastern decent today in Sydney, Australia. It’s the real world – a side we haven’t seen.

For your chance to win email me with your full name and postal address and tell me the title of your favourite film involving drugs or crime. Competition closes Sunday August 2. Passes will be posted the following day.

    Impeccable film. Very refined plot obviously a labor of several years in creation. I hope this film heralds a welcome age in Australian film making that doesn’t need to be quirky. The story was simply interesting and actually did compel me to think of those middle eastern people we read about with a degree of empathy. A class above any Australian film I have ever seen that has tried to tackle this genre. It was definitely an account from an insider but he/she managed to craft his/her memories into scenes that had a purpose above diatribe incorporating anticipation and was very real without losing appeal. I will probably see it again.

    This film sounds promising and similar to a screenplay that I’m currently writing.
    Hope it does well though, the industry needs it badly.
