Ever taken a five buck gamble on a piece of kitsch nick-nackery you thought just might be priceless?
Funny, soul bearing – a masterpiece traversing comedy and drama. Based on a true story, Bakersfield Mist is marvellously entertaining, starring the fabulous John Wood and Julie Nihill.
Maude (Julie Nihill), an unemployed bartender, has bought a painting for a few bucks from an opp shop. Despite almost trashing it, she now thinks it’s a Jackson Pollock worth millions. In fact she’s certain it is. But when world-class art expert, Lionel Percy (John Wood), flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer park home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he really has no idea what he’s about to discover.
