Kind, quiet Tannie Maria (Maria Doyle Kennedy, Outlander, Orphan Black) isn’t a woman who draws much notice. She leads a solitary life, writing recipes for the local gazette, cooking with ingredients from her garden, and chatting to her pet chicken, Morag. When Maria becomes the newspaper’s advice columnist, she peppers her responses with delectable recipes to help people fix their problems. But after a woman who wrote to her turns up dead, Maria and her colleague, rookie journalist Jessie (Kylie Fisher), spring into action. They’re determined to solve the murder in their small South African town, to the annoyance of police detective Khaya (Tony Kgoroge, Invictus). The investigation stirs up painful memories from Maria’s past in Scotland—and puts Jessie and Maria in the crosshairs of the killer. Can the detecting duo crack the case before the murderer catches them? This “suspense-filled drama series” (Sunday World, South Africa) is based on the bestselling novels by Sally Andrew

Put your answer on Twitter, Instagram (with the hashtag #DendyOscars, tagging @reviewbrisbane), Facebook, or on our website!

SYNOPSIS:

With the 95th Academy Awards approaching us in March, Dendy Cinemas is celebrating the great cinematic achievements of the past with a selection of our favourite Best Picture winners over the last nine decades including
silent films and Golden Age classics plus neo-noir thrillers and historical epics.

Dendy will raise the curtain with the 45th Anniversary of THE DEER HUNTER on 26 January and screen 14 Best Picture winners through to March 12 with our closing screening of GONE WITH THE WIND. You can see what else is screening and purchase your tickets here.

The very first Academy Awards ceremony took place on May 16, 1929. A largely private affair, it was an intimate dinner hosted by swashbuckling star Douglas Fairbanks at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Consisting of 270 people who each paid $5 ($87 in 2023) to attend, the ceremony portion lasted a mere 15 minutes, as the winners had already been notified three months earlier.

Fast forward 94 years and the Oscars have well and truly become the apex of Hollywood’s awards season and remain as divisive as ever. The Oscar nominations for 2023 will be announced on 24 January. Keep an eye out on the Dendy website to see when we will be screening this year’s nominees and winners.
