A Savage Christmas on Binge – BINGE today announced new Australian original, A Savage Christmas, will premiere tomorrow on BINGE Friday 15 December.
Nominated for a 2024 AACTA Award for Best Indie Film, A Savage Christmas is a modern love story about identity, family and the hilarious antics that ensue when a dysfunctional family comes together to celebrate Christmas in regional Australia.
After years of estrangement, trans woman Davina Savage (Thea Raveneau), returns home for Christmas with her new boyfriend. Expecting her transition to be the focus, it is overshadowed by family secrets and lies which could jeopardise not only their lives – but another Christmas lunch.
Written, directed and Co-produced by multi-award-winning Madeleine Dyer, and Produced by Ben McNeill and Daniel Mulvihill, A Savage Christmas stars Darren Gilshenan, Helen Thomson, Ryan Morgan, David Roberts, Thea Raveneau, Max Jahufer, Rekha Ryan, and Gary Sweet with guest stars Rachel Griffiths, Charlotte Chimes, Daniel Mulvihill, Isaac Gull, Jacqui Duncan, Spike Farrow-Pryke and Tashi Zamir-Holmes.
Alison Hurbert-Burns, BINGE Executive Director and Foxtel Group Content and Commissioning, said:
“This original Australian Christmas movie puts a new spin on the classic Christmas comedy format with a uniquely Australian lens. Co-written and Directed by the wonderfully talented Madeleine Dyer, who also directed an episode of BINGE’s smash hit comedy Colin From Accounts. We love supporting up and coming local creatives, like Madeleine, and we hope A Savage Christmas is on everyone’s Christmas viewing list.”
A Savage Christmas is a Roaring Entertainment production presented by Screen Australia and Screen Queensland, in association with Bonsai Films and Odin’s Eye Entertainment
