The Waiting City - Interview and Giveaway

I was recently asked by Hopscotch Films if I would like to interview the director, Clarie McCarthy of upcoming Australian release The Waiting City. With the movie being filmed entirely in India and staring one of my favourite Aussie actors Isabel Lucas, I thought "yes, why not!".

Anyways here is a bit about the movie..the filming is visually stunning!


Directed by Australian rising talent Claire McCarthy, The Waiting City tells the story of an outwardly happy Australian couple who journey to India to collect their adopted baby. When they arrive in Kolkata they discover that the adoption arrangements have still to be finalised. Soon the intoxicating mystic power of the city pulls them in separate and unexpected directions and the vulnerability of their marriage begins to reveal itself. The first Australian feature film to be shot entirely in India, The Waiting City is an intimate, complex love story of transformation, set against the exhilarating epic backdrop of Kolkata, starring Radha Mitchell, Joel Edgerton and Isabel Lucas.
