So 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.
