Straight from Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, Eephus is a delightful debut about a valedictory game of baseball. A joyous slice of Americana drawing lauded comparisons to Richard Linklater (Boyhood, SFF 2014).

Their beloved field about to give way to an imminent construction project, two non-professional teams gather to face each other for the last time. There are a few spectators with varying levels of interest, even a food vendor. But the game is only of great importance to the men playing it (and not always well). As the protracted game progresses, strategic errors are made, the light fades, and drastic action is needed for the game to come to an end. An eephus is a rare baseball pitch appearing to be deceptively innocuous. But fear not: no knowledge of, or indeed interest in, baseball is required for enjoyment of this sublime hangout film.

Limited seats are available for patrons requiring access for wheelchairs, low vision and hearing loop. Please contact our ticketing team directly on 1300 733 733 or tickets@sff.org.au to complete your booking.
A wry and lovely baseball movie that pitches slowballs of quiet wisdom
Jessica Kiang, Variety
Lighthearted in the vein of Richard Linklater
Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
If the perfect sports movie illustrates the fundamentals that make one fall in love with the game, there may be no better movie about baseball than Carson Lund's Eephus
Jordan Raup, The Film Stage
