HEY HEY ITS ESTHER BLUEBURGER a smart, rueful and dead-on portrait of lifes unending quest to fit in and the girl who solves it by completely breaking out introduces a feisty outsider hero unlike any other seen on screen. Esther Blueburgers (DANIELLE CATANZARITI) quest begins when she escapes from her Bat Mitzvah party and is befriended by Sunni. (KEISHA CASTLE-HUGHES), the effortlessly cool girl who is everything Esther thinks she wants to be. With the help of Sunni, Esther goes AWOL from her ordinary life and leaves behind her malfunctioning nuclear family to hang out with Sunnis far breezier and super-hip single mum Mary (TONI COLLETTE) and attend Sunnis forbidden public school as a Swedish exchange student. The film recently had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival and will be released nationally in Australia on March 20th, 2008.
