The Australian premiere of Worlds Apart, starring Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons, will kick start the Delphi Bank 23rd Greek Film Festival in Sydney, Australia. The 12 day Festival will run October 12 to 23, 2016.
The romantic drama written and directed by the critically acclaimed Christopher Papakaliatis is the highest grossing Greek film since 2009, and will also star the Greek filmmaker.
Set in modern day Greece, Worlds Apart tells three separate love stories, between a Greek and a foreigner. The narratives represent a different generation falling in love during the European crisis, which eventually connect to a single story.
J.K. Simmons said, “[Worlds Apart] has the flavor of being a Greek film, but also has a very international quality. Christopher as a writer, as a film director and as an actor was a triple threat and [has been] a treat to work with.”
