Ellie and Abbie (& Ellie's Dead Aunt)

1h 22m Romance, Comedy, Drama 2020

17-year-old Ellie (Sophie Hawkshaw) has a serious crush on her classmate Abbie (Zoe Terakes), and is struggling to find the courage to ask her to the Year 12 formal. Things start to get complicated and a little bit spooky, when Ellie’s deceased aunt Tara (Julia Billington), a lesbian activist from the 1980s, returns from the dead as a ‘Fairy Godmother’ to dish out advice, whether Ellie wants it or not.

Winner of the Audience Award for Best Narrative Film at Mardi Gras Film Festival 2020, this heartfelt and hilarious queer teen rom-com offers a fresh take on the universal ‘first love’ story, whilst paying homage to Sydney’s LGBTIQ+ activist history and celebrating the massive inroads to equality made over time.
