• Words on the Waves & Margaret Pomeranz presents: CANDY

    Festival Patron and Central Coast local Margaret Pomeranz will host an evening of conversation and film at the much-loved Cinema Paradiso, Ettalong. Based on the 1998 book of the same name, the 2006 film Candy charts the descent into heroin hell with young star-crossed addicts, Candy and Dan. As their increasing dependency leads them to prostitution and desperation, not even their fierce love can stop the wreckage. Please join us to revisit this Australian classic with BAFTA-winning screenwriter (and author of the original novel), Luke Davies, alongside much-loved cinema doyenne Margaret Pomeranz.
