International travellers hope work in the town's only pub will be an authentic outback experience...Unfortunately it is.

 Fresh off the plane, two Finnish backpackers find themselves the latest batch of "fresh meat" sent to work as barmaids at the only pub in a remote Australian mining town.

Confronted with a culture of alienation and impunity, in limbo between being desired and disdained - their working holiday rapidly deteriorates into a bizarre test of endurance, as they discover that to meet expectations they'll need to do more than just pour drinks.

Set deep in Australia's harsh interior, HOTEL COOLGARDIE is a sometimes amusing, sometimes appalling, surprisingly moving portrait of small town insularity, fragile masculinity and the plight of the outsider forced to adapt or face the consequences.

Hotel Coolgardie bears witness to a hot-button issue that, in an era of pay equity and gender equality, demands to be addressed. Sexual harassment in the workplace is alive and well.

“Gleeson weaves in a sly sense of humour… Reminiscent of the dust-laden classic Wake In Fright…”  Cult Projctions
