Based on the critically lauded play Who's afraid of the working class?, which writers Andrew Bovell, Melissa Reeves, Patricia Cornelius and Christos Tsiolkas have adapted for the big screen, Blessed interweaves four profoundly moving stories which follow the poignant and compelling misadventures of six children as they wander the city streets through a day and a night. It's a film about the depth of love between mothers and their young, and the life force that ultimately connects us all.

Theatrical report

Well, there ain't nothing blessed about the lives in this hard-core Aussie drama. The writers have woven a whole bunch of stories together from a whole different bunch of viewpoints and every one of those stories is hard and dark. It's a great look into the lives of those living right at the bottom edge of society. It's depressing so stock up on your Prozac. The acting is understated, the directing is easy on the eye, the locations are in your own neighbourhood and the world is fucked-up. I love Aussie cinema.

The Australia, drama movie Blessed is directed by Ana Kokkinos and stars Deborra-Lee Furness, Miranda Otto, Frances O'Connor.
