BARRETT, SHIRLEY: WALK THE TALK

Her debut film, Love Serenade, won her the $70,000 Camera d'Or at Cannes - and a no strings gift of $5 million to make her next film from David Geffen of Dreamworks. But nothing is quite like it seems in real life, as Australia's Shirley Barrett explains to Andrew L. Urban. And as she shows in her new film, Walk the Talk.


HEAR Andrew L. Urban's interview with Shirley Barrett

Recently released from prison, Joey Grasso (Savatore Coco) is a determined follower of self-help gurus and is romantically attached to paraplegic Bonita (Sacha Horler), whom he met at a revivalist church. Smitten by down-on-her-luck Gold Coast club singer Nikki Raye (Nikki Bennett) Joey decides to open a talent agency using funds from Bonita's insurance payout. With his one and only client's half-hearted support Joey sets his sights on turning Nikki into a major star.
