A vivacious, misguided redhead (Krew Boylan) trades her 9-to-5 to become a Dolly Parton impersonator in Gracie Otto’s utterly enjoyable Australian comedy. A hit at SXSW 2022.
When Raylene Delaney, aka ‘Red’, dons the fake hair and rhinestones and steps up to the mike, it’s the beginning of a tumultuous journey, involving a love affair with Kenny Rogers (Daniel Webber, excellent) and encounters with the likes of Elvis, Neil Diamond and Kylie. Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale join in the fun, and of course, there’s a plethora of Dolly hits. A female-driven project, Otto’s feature film debut (following her documentaries The Last Impresario, SFF 2013, and Under the Volcano, SFF 2021) won’t fail to charm. Watching Raylene (Boylan, also the co-writer of the film) embrace her Dollyness and find her true self is a total pleasure.

Don't miss Seriously Red: Afterparty at the Hub after the screening.
