John Brumpton as Les

Pawno is a big-hearted, character-driven ensemble film that takes place in a dusty old pawnbroker’s in the heart of Footscray, where world-weary owner Les Underwood watches as the lives of people who come through his doors collide, change, and unravel. From blossoming romance to desperate last gambles, these twelve individuals’ stories represent the best and the worst of one day in the life of Melbourne’s most hopeful and giddily mixed-up suburb. Pawno crackles with inventiveness and irreverence in equal measure; it celebrates the rawness of humanity, and challenges audiences to see the world from a different view. The eclectic cast includes veteran actors, John Brumpton (Romper Stomper), Kerry Armstrong (Lantana) and Tony Rickards (Holding The Man), alongside rising talents, Maeve Dermody (Griff, the Invisible), Mark Coles Smith (Last Cab to Darwin) and Damian Hill (Spin Out).


Thanks to Mind Blowing Films, each ClubInk member receives a double pass to this tough but tender Aussie drama.
