Luella Miller's in town...

Luella Miller's in town...and things are about to change!

Luella Miller is the new Kiwi digital feature film from the team that brought you the 2001 Inaugural Best Digital Film at the NZ Film Awards, The Waiting Place.

Blonde, sexy and lethal, Luella is the kind of woman that can cause a fight to break out across a room without a word. Played by gorgeous Shortland Streeter Sia Trokenheim, Luella's a character everyone can find a moment to hate and that's just one of the emotions you'll feel when you see this drama played out.

Stealing the show of course is the wonderful Sara Wiseman as anxious, in love and out of place Lydia. Sara's compelling performance of a woman on the edge of sanity has moved pre-release audiences and will touch you in a compelling way.

Rounding out this wonderful cast is Shortland Street regular Philip Brown as the central love interest, Christian. Then in major support roles are Jaqueline Nairn, Alistair Browning and veteran thesp Kevin J. Wilson.

At its world premiere in Hawke's Bay last November the Hawkes Bay Today Newspaper awarded it a 4.5 out of 5 stars review and described the film as "riveting stuff". They want on to say "Perfectly judged scene changes, flawless performances and a narrative line that never falters. There are surprises and twists right through to the end from a script that had an affection for the characters who took on a disturbing dimension of familiarity. Yes, this could be simmering just under the surface of our own communities, just waiting for an event that could topple the delicately balanced equilibrium."

It's high praise for the latest in the Kiwi digital film production pipeline. Support this training ground for the latest in kiwi "behind the camera" talent and be rewarded with compelling performances from some of our best acting talent.

Luella Miller is playing an exclusive two week season at Rialto Auckland in Newmarket - click for session times or to book online. This may be your only chance to see it on the big screen. Don't miss out. Be part of this uniquely kiwi entertainment revolution.


Please note that Luella Miller is rated R16 and contains violence, offensive language, drug use and sex scenes.
