A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

WIN! Double passes to see neon fantasy ‘Mona Lisa And The Blood Moon’

Mona Lisa And The Blood Moon is a mind-bending adventure set in the swampy neon-lit streets of New Orleans, and inspired by fantasy-adventure movies of the 1980s and ’90s. At its centre is a girl with strange and dangerous abilities who escapes from a mental asylum and rejoins the chaos of modern-day civilization, on the hedonistic streets of the French Quarter.

For most of her life, Mona Lisa Lee (Jeon Jong-seo) has been institutionalised – straitjacketed and nearly catatonic. But under the influence of a blood moon, she decides to break free, finally tapping into her supernatural ability to control human minds.

Starring a ferociously bewitching Jeon Jong-seo (Burning), Iranian-American director Ana Lily Amirpour’s new film explodes onto the screen with her trademark bold visual stylings and twists on genre.

The film also stars Kate Hudson as a stripper and struggling single-mother who befriends Jun Jong Seo and sees an opportunity to make some fast cash.

Soaked in neon, New Orleans is imbued with a carnivalesque feel that is matched by its kooky inhabitants, including a stripper (played with trashy relish by Kate Hudson) who exploits Mona Lisa’s talents for financial gain and the dogged cop (an unusually straight-faced Craig Robinson) hot on the escapee’s trail. A hostile world, dark humour, odd pairings, superpowers – this thrill ride inspired by your beloved 80s fantasy-adventure movies will have you hypnotised.
