"If you loved 'Mamma Mia,' this 'Brand New Day' is for you." (Sirius/XM Radio) Oscar-winner "Geoffrey Rush is awesome" (Ain't It Cool News) as a hilariously devout minister chasing a runaway seminary student named Willie across the land down under. As Willie tries to make it back to the girl of his dreams, he embarks on a glorious, uproarious road trip filled with music, magic, and foot-stomping fun. Based on a beloved Australian musical, 'Brand New Day' is "one of the most delightful, heartfelt and crowd-pleasing musical comedies in years." NYC Movie Guru)
The movie was nominated for Best Sound, Best Original Music Score, Best Costume Design, and Best Film at the Australian Film Institute awards where Deborah Mailman also won for Best Supporting Actress.
