CHERUBHEAD is an intimate psychological thriller loosely based on the literature of Niccoló Machiavelli, the father of political science whose controversial premise is that ‘It is better to be feared than loved’.

Shot in the West Australian towns of Rockingham and Armadale during two state-wide lockdowns, with a reported micro-budget of a mere $3000, CHERUBHEAD has now begun its post-production phase, with production company Filindeu Films hosting an online test screening for registered viewers globally.

CHERUBHEAD will be free to watch online with the film being made available to access between August 1-7. Audiences will be asked to complete a survey about the film immediately after the screening.

Having been described as a “claustrophobic, psychological drama” and “a female-centric, power-play thriller”, CHERUBHEAD is the story of Marie Annette (Sarah Legg), an uptight socialite who invites an orphan, Ellie (portrayed by award winning singer/ songwriter Angelina Curtis) to a holiday home stay in the hopes of adopting her. However, when Sophie Piero (stage actor Nicola Kinnane), a rebellious thief and old rival of Marie, finds herself at the same holiday home on account of a family research program, Marie takes it on herself to do everything in her power to win Ellie’s affections and keep the orphan for herself.
