Days of plenty numbered!

The Edukators "Tense, evocative and emotional. One of the smartest thrillers this year" is how the Chicago Tribune described Magnetic Island Film Society's November movie "The Edukators". Screening is at 8pm on Sarturday 5th November at the RSL Hall in Arcadia.

Film critic luminaries Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton from ABC TV's The Movie Show give the film a 4/5 and 3/5 star rating respectively. Their review can be read here

A synopsis of the film from its official website (link here) follows.

Jule is a waitress that can't make ends meet. She moves in with her boyfriend Peter and his friend Jan, two young men united by their passion to change the world.

But Jule has a secret: A past auto accident has burdened her with lifetime payments to successful businessman, Hardenberg. Peter and Jan also have a secret: They are the notorious "Edukators," mysterious perpetrators who break into expensive homes of the local yacht club members as an act of political rebellion. They wreak havoc and leave notes that read, "Your days of plenty are numbered."

While Peter is away on holiday, secrets between Jan and Jules are disclosed and feelings between them intensify. They impulsively break into the home of the businessman to whom Jules is indebted. But their growing passion has made them careless and when they're forced to return to the villa the following night to retrieve a forgotten cell phone, Hardenberg surprises them.

They have no choice but to call Peter for help, even if it means his finding out about their betrayal.

The trio makes a rash decision and their futures (as well as Hardenberg's) are quaked. Ideals are tested as generations collide, passions rage, and loyalties shatter.

The Edukators is co-written and directed by Hans Weingartner and co-stars the rising international star Daniel Br

It's 14 years since I last visited Maggy. I am shocked by Nelly Bay and saddened. It is insensitive, ugly and juxtaposed to the essence of Maggy. I embrace progress in general, but this is poorly conceived and executed. Shame.
