Angela Wins Big at the 2019 SASA AWARDS:
At the South Australian Screen Awards Angela Heesom was presented the Mercury Award, dedicated to celebrating one individual’s outstanding achievement and contribution to the South Australian film industry! It was a total shock and left her ABSOLUTELY speechless! “Angela’s intelligence, integrity, and boundless energy as well as her willingness to share her precious time with not only international-scale directors and producers but with local short filmmakers embarking on their first production, has made her a beloved and integral part of the South Australian screen industry and a cherished colleague and mentor,” said Media Resource Centre director Gail Kovatseff.
We are so insanely proud of you Ang!! And we’re so lucky to work for you!! You’re the best boss lady ever!!

🚘 “Well darlin', look out 'cause my hair is comin' down!”⠀
Thelma and Louise really brought home to me in a very powerful way how few opportunities we give to women to come out of a movie theater feeling inspired and empowered by the female characters.⠀
So that changed everything for me about my choices in that I really wanted to think about what the reaction that the women in an audience was going to be, what would they think about my character, so that’s been a very important part of my choices since then and impacts me to this day.⠀

Happy Anniversary Thelma and Louise. ⠀

A 'bad seed' arrives from outer space in this pedestrian mix of superhero and evil-child #horror conventions...
#Superman meets #TheOmen in “Brightburn,” a watchable but super-silly mix of superheroics and evil-child horror that mashes together singularly uninspired ideas from both. Offering R-rated fantasy competition to “Aladdin” this Memorial Day weekend, it should do OK with undiscriminating audiences seeking familiar, forgettable genre thrills. But the franchise prayers that an open-ended fadeout dangles seem unlikely to be answered, unless they’re heard in the realm of cheaper, direct-to-streaming sequels.
Not that this hopeful kickoff is exactly deluxe, though it does rep a modest budgetary leap from helmer David Yarovesky’s prior feature, 2014 sci-fi horror “The Hive.” The advertising for “Brightburn” prominently bills James Gunn, “visionary filmmaker behind ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’” That it turns out he’s just a producer here (relatives Brian and Mark Gunn are the scenarists) may lead to some annoyance among those expecting more than B-movie-level spectacle.
But as is so often the case in this kind of film, the real problem isn’t its production limits so much as a lack of imagination. The premise isn’t bad, even if the evil-Superman origin story was done better in “Chronicle.” The execution, however, is lacking, particularly in freshness, humor or style. If what can make an otherwise clock-punching popcorn entertainment memorable are its idiosyncrasies, this movie offers only some gratuitously dwelt-upon gore.
