European Premiere

This, the début feature film by childhood friends Daniel Martinico and Hugo Armstrong, is a disturbing and compelling depiction of a struggling actor driven to despair. Our hero (played by co-writer Armstrong, who has drawn inspiration from experience) is a dedicated but down on his luck actor driven to depression by his demoralising auditions. Encouraged by  a motivational advice CD to act boldly, and to demand to be heard, Paul attempts to be more assertive in the face of disrespect but can't quite embrace the necessary belligerent attitude. On the verge of a break-down, he begins to vent his anger the only way he knows how.

Martinico and Armstrong use Paul's humdrum routines - his confinement in his tiny flat, low-profile advert auditions and the high-energy drama workshops he attends – to take us deep into his psyche. Each insight into his life brings with it a different kind of intensity and the close-range documentary-style filming adds a raw quality to the film. Paul's slow-paced character arc is developed over heart-rending auditions and the painful-to-watch, awkwardly disturbing cult-like workshops. A strangely compelling drama film with dark comedic undertones, OK, Good offers a bold and truthful insight into loneliness and desperation.
