‘Pawno’

279391-pawno-0-230-0-345-cropMinor Melbourne-set Australian film which nevertheless beautifully captures a day in the life of several characters in the down-at-heel working-class, multicultural suburb of Footscray.

It’s an ensemble driven piece built around local legend John Brompton (Red Hill, Romper Stomper) as Les, owner of the local pawn shop. Characters come and go as they drop into the shop to (mostly) sell or (occasionally) buy. It’s honest, occasionally gritty and with more than a touch of humour.
