Brooke Williams plays Margot Bramwell in the New Zealand film Predicament, set to premiere in New Zealand on August 26, 2010.
Margot Bramwell is described on the Predicament Facebook Page as “the sexy, young, trophy-second-wife of property mogul, Vernon Bramwell. Margot is secretly having an affair right under Vernon’s nose.”
Designated as a Gothic crime comedy, Predicament tells the story of naive teenager, Cedric Williamson. Cedric conspires with two misfits to photograph and blackmail adulterous couples. When the scam goes wrong they end up with blood on their hands. Tortured by lust, roped into blackmail and possibly an accessory to murder, Cedric is in a predicament.
Set in 1930’s small town New Zealand and adapted from a Ronald Hugh Morrison novel of the same name, Predicament is a hard film to categorize as it touches on many genres. The overall theme of the film is a crime drama, with a fantastic comedy element woven throughout, which kept the plot intriguing and the characters quirky.
An audience member who saw the film at a NZ festival had this to say:
“…What makes the casting and story really interesting is that the main character Cedric (film newcomer Hayden Frost), even when partnered with two fantastic comedy heavyweights Flight of the Conchords Jemaine Clement, and Heath (Chopper) Franklin, never gets lost in the cast or upstaged as the main character. Both Spook (Jemaine) and Mervyn (Heath) provide lots of character personality, features & flaws that Cedric’s character doesn’t have, which creates an unlikely trio of mischief that never lets up from the opening to the closing credits. All the supporting actors are great too, including kiwi icon Tim Finn, who plays a great character that adds to poor Cedric’s woes. I love fun films and that is exactly what Predicament delivers…”Predicament Facebook page, Predicament IMDB, Predicament Audience Review
