When Chinese-Australian teenager Lawrence fails his high-school exams because of cheating, destroying his dreams of a medical degree, he's banished to the country for the summer. There, he meets a conman the Professor and his cynical daughter Sarah, and learns that even the sneakiest scam can't conjure up love.
The film is the adaptation of comedian/actor Lawrence Leung's critically acclaimed award-winning one-man theatre show SUCKER. The original live show was a critical and sell-out success at the Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Sydney Opera House. He co-wrote the screenplay with director Ben Chessell, who saw an early performance of the show and approached Lawrence about turning it into a movie. See more »
Jacek Koman, who plays 'Riley', is listed in the first part of the final credits as one of the major performers, but is not named in the Cast List (which is presented in order of appearance). See more »
The first of the final credits show the names of the main performers, and then there is a scene of Lawrence Leung talking about liars and lying, after which he is joined by John Luc who portrayed him in the film. They have a conversation as they walk through the movie's set and out into the street. This is followed by the credits beginning with the cast list in order of appearance See more »
I'm proud to say that I was apart of the lucky group of people who got to see this splendid movie at its premiere and boy was it amazing.
This movie blew my socks off, literally. After the movie finished I had to search the entire cinema just to find them because they just flew right off my feet.
The story is an inspirational tale of young Asian teenager (YouTuber, John Luc AKA MyChonny) trying to find true calling in life after he's caught cheating on his medical exam. He eventually finds it learning how to scam people from master swindler (Timothy Spall aka the rat in Harry Potter) and his sometimes hot daughter (Lily Sullivan, great actress).
This is one of the few Australian movies that make Aussie cinema proud! (Unlike 'Australia'.. what on Earth happened there?)
It's YouTuber MyChonny's first official acting role and you can tell he was at ease from all of his years of experience acting as Asian mum, Asian dad, Asian boy, Asian girl and the list goes on.
In conclusion the movie is a interesting, well thought out story by Lawrence Leung and Ben Chessell did an amazing job directing it, his cinematography skills are truly something special.
I highly recommend this movie!
P.S. Did anyone notice how buff Chonny looked? WHAT A BOD!!
