My sister and I flew in for the Melbourne International Film Festival’s world premiere of Three Summers on the weekend! We had a great time! (I’ll keep this spoiler free, short & simple.) We thought the film was funny, and probably the most Aussiest thing I have seen in a long time, although, I hadn’t heard of the theremin before reading about it on the project reveal last year. Rob’s performance as Roland was on peak (as always!) and thought he had some of the best parts in the film! Well done, Ben Elton. *claps*
We then headed to the afterparty, we grabbed some drinks and mingled around The Atrium in Federation Square until we spotted the amazing shiny pants. We eventually approached him to introduce ourselves when we could, I reached out for a hug and was a bit nervous (and a little tipsy) so my sister did most of the talking and briefly explained that I was from his original fansite, he asked me about it and told me he knew who I was and thanked me. He told us that he couldn’t play the theremin very well because it was very hard. There was definitely a horse and carriage joke in the conversation too, *laughs*. He was so lovely as people always say! And even more beautiful in person… if that’s even possible? To be quite honest, it still doesn’t feel real. Can I remain 30 forever now? haha. ^.^
The film will be releasing in Australian cinemas from November 2! Click here to follow the official Three Summers Facebook page! (:
The Melbourne International Film Festival have updated their website with a lot of photos from the red carpet, afterparty and the Q&A (In Conversation) for Three Summers. I have sifted through them all and added the ones of Rob to the gallery (with sources). There are some great shots! There is also some theremin action… Be sure to check them out!

Better late than never, right? I have just returned home from the Melbourne International Film Festival where they held the world premiere and afterparty for the comedy film Three Summers (more on that later, I’m exhausted!) I have added 11 lovely high res photos of Robert Sheehan with writer-director Ben Elton and cast to the gallery, be sure to check out those amazing shiny pants!
The very first poster has just released for Ben Elton’s Three Summers starring Robert Sheehan and Rebecca Breeds. I also have a couple of new promotional stills as well. You can find them all in the photo gallery in high quality! Check them out here.
A new synopsis has been released along with the stills (we now know Robert’s name in the film!) Catch it Australian cinemas on November 2, hopefully more countries to be announced later.
When Keevey (Rebecca Breeds), the lead singer of a popular Irish folk band The Warrikins, meets Roland (Robert Sheehan), a self righteous and somewhat eccentric theremin player, at a rural folk festival, sparks begin to fly. Their blossoming romance forms the backdrop to a series of interweaving festival stories as we see how the characters change from one summer to the next. Among them is Henry (Michael Caton) a grieving grandfather who runs the local Morris Dancing troupe, Eamon (John Waters), Keevey’s father and founder of The Warrikins; and Jack (Kelton Pell), a Noongar didgeridoo player. Keeping them all in line is Queenie (Magda Szubanski), the community radio announcer, who sees the same old confrontations year after year and thinks it’s high time we found ways to embrace our differences and all learn to get along. Written and directed by renowned comedian Ben Elton, Three Summers is a comedy about a community who discover they have much more in common than their taste in music.
