Finding Joy

The award-winning feature-length movie
shot in and around
Braidwood, NSW.

Filmmakers Billie Dean and Andrew Einspruch live near, and deeply love, the historic heritage town of Braidwood, NSW. So they located their debut feature film Finding Joy in and around it. "The town has so much character, and the surroundings are so beautiful, it was a real joy to have these settings part of our movie," said writer/director/lead actress Billie Dean. "The film was inspired by Braidwood's folk music sub-culture. I wanted to create a story that reflected the Braidwood I know and love."

The Story

Joy Brown (Billie Dean)Joy Brown (Billie Dean) is a 40-something woman with little confidence, less self-esteem and a burning desire to realise her dream of being a singer/songwriter. But she can’t sing.

When Joy takes in a stray dog, Raffi, her life immediately changes. Her best friend, the tarot card reading Tessa (Janet Watson Kruse), moves in, Joy changes her name to Luna Starr, and she meets Peter Wolfman (Andrew Einspruch).

When Peter encourages her to perform with him at the local pizzeria’s folk music nights, Joy sings – sort of – hiding behind masks of wigs and silliness.

Peter Wolfman (Andrew Einspruch)Despite the singing, Peter and Joy’s relationship blossoms. But there are lots of hiccups along the way -- ex-wives, ex-husbands, frightening performances, and bucket loads of doubt.

RaffiSet to the backdrop of the folk music scene in an arty country town, the film celebrates universal themes of friendship, low self-esteem, love relationships, and the joy of dogs.
