Fantasia 2010: Ricky D Recommends The Loved Ones
Sean Byrne’s debut feature, The Loved Ones, not only received a standing ovation at last year’s midnight madness screening at TIFF, but it was also the recipient of The Cadillac People’s Choice Award (Midnight Madness), and received a number of positive reviews (including our own).
Anyone who has been following trends in world cinema cannot deny that there are a lot of new voices emerging from Australia. Feel free to toss director Sean Byrne into the list. The Loved Ones is a slick, quick, and surprisingly intense little anti-love story, and if there is one movie made for the Fantasia audience in this year’s line up, it’s The Loved Ones. Don’t miss it. Check out the trailer after the jump.
