'Romulus,' 'Home Song' top Aussie film awards

7 December 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

SYDNEY -- Two films that deal with Australian immigrant stories -- Romulus, My Father, set in the postwar era, and The Home Song Stories, set in the 1970s -- shared the spoils with three awards apiece at Thursday's Australian Film Institute Awards.

Romulus, Richard Roxburgh's directorial debut, took home best film, though Roxburgh couldn't beat out Tony Ayres for best director for Home Song. Ayres also won best screenplay, and Joan Chen -- who reportedly came out of semi-retirement to play Shanghai nightclub signer Rose as she struggles to deal with two children in 1970s Australia -- won best actress. The wins gave Home Song eight AFI Awards; it received five craft awards in a separate ceremony Wednesday.

Romulus' other wins includes best actor for Eric Bana and best supporting actor to Martin Csokas.

Kodi Smit-McPhee, 10, who played Romulus' son Raymond, won the AFI Young Actor Award.

The best supporting actress nod went to Emma Booth for playing the feisty vixen Jill in Cherie Nowlan's Clubland.

With Geoffrey Rush hosting and stars including Cate Blanchett, Eric Bana and Anthony La Paglia presenting, the awards are billed as a celebration of Australian film. »
