Movie Trailer: Jon Hewitt’s X

By Mike Everleth ⋅ August 19, 2011

Jon Hewitt’s X is a thriller set in the seedy underbelly of Sydney, Australia. A high-priced call girl (Viva Bianca) wants to call it quits on her career, but she has one last job to perform. She recruits a young runaway girl (Hanna Mangan Lawrence) working her first night as a prostitute to help satisfy a good-paying client.

But, during the course of their evening, the ladies of the night witness a murder and the killer targets them next.

Most recently, X has been selected as the feature film for the Melbourne Underground Film Festival’s “Mystery Screening,” which will be held on the night after the fest’s official Closing Night festivities.  The screening will take place on Aug. 28 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Kilda Memo.

Then, the film will screen in Hewitt’s hometown as the Closing Night movie at the 5th annual Sydney Underground Film Festival on Sept. 11 at 7:00 p.m.

The movie has been acquired for release in the U.S. by IFC, but no dates have been set.
