JUDY & PUNCH

In the anarchic town of Seaside, nowhere near the sea, puppeteers Judy and Punch are trying to resurrect their marionette show. The show is a hit due to Judy's superior puppeteering, but Punch's driving ambition and penchant for whisky lead to an inevitable tragedy that Judy must avenge.

In a visceral and dynamic live-action reinterpretation of the famous sixteenth-century puppet show, the traditional story of Punch and Judy is turned on its head bringing to life a fierce, darkly comic and epic female-driven revenge story. Starring Mia Wasikowska and Damon Herriman.

Certified Fresh at Rotten Tomatoes.

The overall concept, from Foulkes and her trio of story collaborators, has a bracingly original air, from the film's period anachronisms to its impressive design elements. -Variety
