Earlier text: High excitement everywhere as Great Southern prepares to launch its second feature film in 2008 - Show of Hands - the Anthony McCarten penned and directed piece.

Melanie has been enjoying a supersonic run in Hollywood, currently concluding an Ed Norton film. She has also just wrapped Steven Soderbergh's The Informant and Sam Mendes' This Must Be the Place.
Being a New Plymouth girl, we hope its a special night for Melanie and her fellow lead Craig Hall, who has also enjoyed a golden run since shooting Show of Hands - with strong character portrayals in Burying Brian and Outrageous Fortune.
