A hit Australian stage play turns big screen sensation in this World Premiere event.

This year’s Opening Night film will have your hearts dancing in an up-swell of romance and comedy. A feelgood Australian story about dating in a multicultural landscape, Alex & Eve brings us a little closer to home – Sydney’s inner west – where a relationship blooms of an unwanted nature.

Alex (Richard Brancatisano) is a handsome Greek Orthodox man in his mid-thirties whose parents want him to marry a good Greek girl. But Alex has fallen in love with Eve (Andrea Demetriades), a Lebanese Muslim woman. Like oil and water, the two should never mix – but how can they stop themselves from falling in love?

Written by Alex Lykos (who also appears in the film as Alex’s older brother) and based on his play of the same name, Alex & Eve delivers all the warmth and humour of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and then takes it to the next level. Uproarious performances by Tony Nikolakopoulos and Zoe Carides as Alex’s indignant parents are the icing on this delicious cinematic cake.

Written by Alex Lykos
Produced by Murray Fahey
Cast: Richard Brancatisano, Andrea Demetriades, Ryan O’Kane, Tony Nikolakopoulos, Zoe Carides

Greek Synopsis:
Ο Αλέξης είναι ένας λεβέντης 30χρονος  Ελληνοαυστραλός τον οποίον οι γονείς τους προορίζουν για μία καλή Ελληνίδα. Ο Αλέξης όμως ερωτεύεται, την Εύα, μία Λιβανέζα, Μουσουλμάνα. Όπως το νερό με το λάδι που δεν μπορούν να σμίξουν, έτσι και  ο Αλέξης με την Εύα, κανονικά, δεν θα έπρεπε να ερωτευτούν. Πώς θα μπορούσαν όμως να αποφύγουν τον έρωτά τους;
