The Flip Side filmed locally hits big screen

Horseshoe Bay features in the climax of a new romantic comedy movie which “taps into the intricacies of relationships, ambition and love when mixed with a bloody good shiraz”. 

The Flip Side stars UK actor Eddie Izzard, South Australian born all-rounder Emily Taheny, and Luke McKenzie of Home and Away and Winners and Losers fame.

It tells the story of Ronnie the struggling Adelaide restaurateur, her good-hearted boyfriend, and her former flame, an actor who returns from the UK for a promotional tour.

Director Marion Pilowsky said they chose to film in Port Elliot for the “climax and triumphant ending” of the film. “I went there and literally had a sharp intake of breath, I was stunned by its beauty,” she said.

“I spoke to the location manager and said I wanted a beach like Port Elliot, and she said ‘I think I could get Port Elliot’. It is truly a beautiful place.”

The Flying Fish Cafe features in the film, as does a number of locals as extras, and of course the bay’s iconic scenery.

The film is in cinemas from August 30.
