Extra Ordinary

Australian Premiere

Official Selection: SXSW

Screens as part of the Irish Film Festival Australia

Rose (Maeve Higgins) is a lonely, small town driving instructor who possesses strange supernatural abilities. The locals regularly need her assistance with hauntings and other supernatural phenomena. She meets Martin Martin (Barry Ward), a widower whose dead wife still makes her presence very much known, and whose daughter, Sarah, is in extreme danger.

Comedian Maeve Higgins (author of Maeve In America, familiar to Australian audiences from her appearance on Spicks and Specks and at the Melbourne Comedy Festival) delivers a perfectly realised performance in a horror comedy with the emphasis very much on the comedy, which becomes increasingly absurd as the film progresses.

“A kind of tea-cosy “Ghostbusters” that’s consistently funny in a pleasingly off-kilter way. “ – Variety

“Thanks to its nonstop jokes, strong, likable characters, and marvellous cast, the movie is hysterical.” Film Threat

Screens with the short film The Granny Flat.
