RJ Mitte talks ‘Standing Up For Sonny’

“‘Standing Up For Sonny’ is about Travis who is really reluctant to have a life and ends up getting a roommate who forces him to get out… this one outing changes his life and draws him into a world of comedy and stand up comedy”

“I play a character who has cerebral palsy, Italia Hunt plays a character who is blind, Philippa Northeast plays a character who is kind of trapped and dealing with her own emotional issues and you have other characters who live in their own psychosis. Each of these individuals are vastly different yet all uniquely the same in a sense that we’re all trying to survive and all trying to grow.”

RJ Mitte on the World Premiere of Standing Up For Sonny which screened as part of the Sydney Film Festival and screens as part of the Travelling Film Festival on Friday August 16 in Port Macquarie, Friday August 30, Saturday August 31 in Sawtell, Friday September 6 in Toowoomba and Saturday November 2 in Nambour and as part of CinefestOz on August 31 at 2:30PM at Orana Cinemas
