Photos: Behind-the-scenes of Rachel Ward’s upcoming Australian film Palm Beach

Images for the upcoming Australian film Palm Beach directed by Rachel Ward (The Thorn Birds) have been revealed, with the project currently shooting on Sydney’s northern beaches.

Palm Beach is a drama-comedy based around a group of lifelong friends reuniting to celebrate a special birthday, with Palm Beach acting as a gorgeous backdrop for the dramatic events about to unfold. Filled with laughter, food, wine and music, the night is off to a great start, but it’s only a matter of time before all secrets are revealed.

Written by Joanna Murray-Smith and Rachel Ward, Palm Beach will also be produced by Bryan Brown for New Town Films and Deb Balderstone for Soapbox Industries.

The film stars Bryan Brown (Sweet Country), Sam Neill (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sweet Country), Greta Scacchi (War & Peace, Looking for Alibrandi), Jacqueline McKenzie (Safe Harbour, Romper Stomper), Richard E Grant (Gosford Park, Logan, Withnail & I), Logie winner Claire van der Boom (The Square, The Pacific, Masters Of Sex), AACTA Award and Logie winner Aaron Jeffery (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, McLeod’s Daughters, Underbelly), AACTA Award nominee Heather Mitchell (The Great Gatsby, A Place To Call Home), AACTA Award nominee Matilda Brown (Let’s Talk About) and newcomers Frances Berry and Charlie Vickers.

Palm Beach will release in Australian cinemas sometime in 2019.
