Fremantle life and some of Australia's finest filmmaking talent are front and centre in this holiday world premiere. 

When her all-male housecleaning business spins out of control, a mature woman Sally Phillips) embraces her own desires to make a new life for herself. A beautifully handled comedy-drama that expertly balances intimacy and humour, How To Please A Woman takes a warm-hearted look at sexuality and vulnerability at all stages of life. 

Screening with short film Sparkles.

Join us on Tuesday 28 Dec for a post-screening Q&A with cast and crew!
