Ruben Guthrie (Patrick Brammall) is on fire. He’s the Creative Director of a cutting-edge advertising agency, he’s engaged to a Czech supermodel (Abbey Lee) and Sydney is his oyster. He pours himself a drink to celebrate, a drink to work, a drink to sleep and one spectacular night he drinks so much he thinks he can fly.
A brutally honest comedy about work, family and excess, Ruben Guthrie taps a deep vein and asks – is it un-Australian to refuse a drink? A funny and moving act of revelation about spiralling high, crashing hard and being taken to AA by your mum.
