A trailer has been released for the Australian film ‘Book Week’, part of which was filmed on Lithgow High School grounds in February this year.
It will hit cinemas from October 25.
The new feature film is by Glenbrook director Heath Davis, who also made ‘Broke’. The film involves well-known Australian actors Rhys Muldoon, Tiriel Mora and Susan Prior.
Actor Alan Dukes plays the lead role of ‘Nick Cuttler’, a jaded English teacher confronting his least favourite week of the school year.
“He is a bit jaded he doesn’t want to be high school teacher anymore so he’s desperate for the week to finish, and it’s also the week the whole world conspires against him,” Mr Dukes told the Lithgow Mercury earlier this year.
Alan Dukes who has appeared in feature films ‘Last Cab to Darwin’, ‘Beneath Hill 60’, and ‘The Little Death’ said he was excited to be in a film with such a focus on community.
