Rachel Ward’s funny, uplifting comedy/drama, with a fantastic cast including Bryan Brown, Sam Neill, Richard E. Grant, Greta Scacchi, Jacqueline McKenzie and Heather Mitchell, Palm Beach raises universal issues through the prism of friendship.
To mark his birthday, Frank (Brown) and Charlotte (Scacchi) decide to throw a three-day party at their luxurious house in Palm Beach, welcoming their closest friends. Frank, Leo (Neill) and Billy (E. Grant) were once involved in a band together; The Pacific Sideburns had one hit but little beyond that. Rounding out the guest list: Billy's partner, beautiful actress Eva (Mitchell); Bridget (McKenzie), who feels that husband Leo is increasingly distant; and the hosts' children Dan and Ella - with new sheepfarmer beau (Charlie Vickers and Matilda Brown - and Aaron Jeffrey).
With witty dialogue, a breathtaking location and great actors at the top of their game, Palm Beach is an exuberant and life-affirming celebration of friendship.
