A movie felt never so refreshing!

A truly one-of-a-kind comedy about the culture clash between outback Australia and American consumerism (represented by its favourite soda). In a small Australian town no one drinks a drop of Coke, and instead consume a local soft drink created by old-time soda baron, T. George McDowell.

Enter Eric Roberts (The Dark Night), a young marketing gun from the US who makes it his mission to plug this black hole in Coke's quest for global domination. Pursued by his beautiful and besotted secretary (Greta Scacchi - The Player, Looking for Alibrandi), who is also McDowell's daughter, the self-styled 'Coca-Cola Kid ' remains focused on crushing the competition, and launches a national marketing campaign featuring a theme song by Tim Finn. But when the Kid tries to infiltrate the renegade soft-drink operation his crusade fizzles in the wake of some unexpected romance. The result: a bubbly blend of love story and comedy that's sure to refresh.

Saturday session includes post-screening Q&A with star Greta Scacchi and producer David Roe.
