Box Office: June Again shines through with domestic stars

Yet again, the audience is telling the sector that local is best when it comes to marquee names. Pity the bankers don't get it.

This week, June Again came out with a giggle and a few tears at number three on the box office ladder. This sane-for-a-day dementia story draws so well on our national passion for certain kinds of television drama, and the cast and crew will be happy with the results – the film was written and directed by J.J. Winlove, stars Noni Hazlehurst, Claudia Karvan and Stephen Curry, and was produced by Drew Bailey, Jamie Hilton and Michael Pontin. Streaming service Stan might be wishing it was on their service as an exclusive, perhaps hoping to pick it up later.
