What do you do when your girlfriend dumps you? Get naked and walk across Western Australia for charity to win her back, according to the protagonist of The Naked Wanderer, played by Angus McLaren (The Merger). Along the way, he meets a backpacker (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) and has to deal with a megalomaniacal Rupert Murdoch type played by comedy legend John Cleese.
Directed by Alan Lindsay and written by Callan Darlik, who also plays the main character’s sidekick, expect lots of laughs, outback scenery and butt shots.
As a sidenote, McLaren and Liu Bordizzo played a couple in Hotel Mumbai, released earlier this year.
