CHEATIN’ (2013) MIFF Review

cheatinfeature

USA 86 Mins

It must have been Idiots and Angels, part of the 2008 MIFF program that introduced me to the animation of Bill Plimpton and I’ve been a fan ever since. His work consists of a rough, hand-drawn style that takes the viewer through insane plots, and CHEATIN’ is no different.

Ella and Jake meet in a mysterious encounter at the dodgem cars in Carnival Lane, and before they know it, they are married. But he is a handsome man, and when he refuses to stray, she manipulates the situation so he thinks Ella is cheating and then she seeks a mysterious revenge, and things have to hit rock bottom before there is a chance of resolution.

CHEATIN’ is screening at 6:45pm on Friday August 1 and at 9pm on Sunday August 10 at ACMI, and at 6:30pm on Saturday August 16 at Kino. Book tickets at MIFF http://miff.com.au/program/search or call 9662 3722
