GO opens in cinemas this week. Mid last year, down at CinefestOZ, we got to see the film and chat to the stars Will Lodder, Anastasia Bampos and Darius Amarfio Jefferson. The film was also shot down in Busselton, so it was great for the returning cast and crew and everyone who attended, to see it at the festivals opening night. I got to spend some time with those three main actors, plus the director (click here for the interview with Owen Trevor). I see a lot more coming from this talented bunch. See the trailer below and the interview below that.
When Jack (William Lodder) and his single mother (Frances O’Connor) move to a small town in Western Australia, he soon gets involved in the competitive world of go-kart racing. Jack’s got natural talent but must learn to control his recklessness.
To do that, he’ll need the help of aspiring engineer, Mandy (Anastasia Bampos), wise-cracking best mate Colin (Darius Amarfio-Jefferson) and mysterious mentor, Patrick (Richard Roxburgh). Together, the team will endeavour to overcome all odds and defeat ruthless racer Dean (Cooper Van Grootel) to win the National Go Kart Championship. GO! is a high-octane Australian family film with heart
GO opens in cinemas January 16! You can check out Travis Johnson’s review here. Interview is below.
