Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) is one half of a puppeteering duo going through tough times in Australian actor Mirrah Foulkes's feature directorial debut. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.
"In the rough-and-tumble town of Seaside (nowhere near the sea), villagers flock to Punch and Judy’s marionette theatre. Though Punch (Damon Herriman) proclaims himself the greatest puppeteer and his beating stick rouses cheers from the crowd, it’s Judy (Wasikowska) who breathes artistry into the otherwise crude show. But during a drinking bout and a tragic mishap with their child, the hot-tempered Punch brutally beats Judy, leaving her for dead in the woods. Taken in by Doctor Goodtime and a society of outcasts, Judy plots her revenge." (Sundance Film Festival)
