VicBears Movie Night – Ideal Home (Melbourne Queer Film Festival)

Join VicBears for a screening of the hilarious US Comedy “Ideal Home” as part of the Melbourne Queer Film Festival 2018. Discount Tickets are available for $16.50 (plus booking fee) by using the discount code VICBEARSMQFF in the “PROMOTIONAL CODE” option when booking into the session. Enter this discount code at the bottom of the booking page, before selecting the number of tickets you would like to purchase. Meet us in the Nova Bar & Kitchen before the film, for a quick drink or to purchase your movie snacks. Darryn from the VicBears Committee will be there from about 4:00pm, so go up and say g’day when you arrive. And after the film, let’s meet back in the Nova Bar & Kitchen for a bite to eat. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone there!! And please check out the rest of the Melbourne Queer Film Festival program at http://www.mqff.com.au IDEAL HOME – SYNOPSIS Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd star as Erasmus and Paul, two long term lovers whose bickering is as epic as their fabulous parties. When the grandson Erasmus never knew he had shows up at their doorstep one night, the pair are plunged unpreparedly into parenthood. This hilarious comedy is a bawdy and surprisingly touching look at the many shapes and forms that families come in. Coogan and Rudd are wonderful as two men trying to figure out how to fit a child into their already complicated and full life. Not to be outshone, Jack Gore as their young charge delivers a stoic and spiky performance as a problem child desperate for some stability. Despite Ideal Home ‘s outrageous take on family values, its tribute to real life LGBTIQ families during the closing credits is genuinely heartwarming.
