First look at P.J. Hogan’s Mental revealed

The first look of P.J. Hogan’s new film Mental has been released.

The film, distributed by Universal Pictures, reunites the writer/director with his Muriel’s Wedding star Toni Collette after 18 years.

After Barry Moochmore’s wife has a mental breakdown, he enlists Shaz as babysitter to his children.

Due out on 4 October, the production also includes Anthony LaPaglia, Rebecca Gibney, Liev Shriber, Kerry Fox, Deborah Mailman and Rob Carlton.

The film was last week selected to close the Melbourne International Film Festival on Saturday 18 August.

The film was shot on the Gold Coast and northern New South Wales.

  6. Kath and Kimderalla and this looks entertaining. Hopefully it has the marketing it needs. A Few Best Man’s marketing was great. Lame movie so it did not have the word of mouth, but great marketing though.
