Ruben Guthrie is on fire. He’s the Creative Director of a cutting-edge advertising agency, he’s engaged to a Czech supermodel and Sydney is his oyster. He pours himself a drink to celebrate, a drink to work, a drink to sleep and one spectacular night he drinks so much he thinks he can fly.
A brutally honest and thought provoking comedy about work, family and excess, Ruben Guthrie taps a deep vein and asks – is it unAustralian to refuse a drink? A funny and moving act of revelation about spiralling high, crashing hard and being taken to AA by your mum.
Produced by Kath Shelper and Directed and Written by Brendan Cowell the film was based on the highly successful stage play Ruben Guthrie.
