It’s My Party (And I’ll Die If I Want To) Henri Szeps stars as Ron - gruff, well ordered, quintessentially Aussie family man - who is convinced he is dying.

The gathering brings about some urgent confessions, a surprise wedding and a visit from the undertaker. Like all great comedies, there is laughter.... but the elbow jabbing at your ribs is a little bit sharper than expected.
