“Inspired by true events, this sparkling and colourful
new comedy-drama asks vital questions about what
makes art and people truly authentic.”
Is the true value of art in the eyes of the beholder?
Maude (Julie Nihill), an unemployed bartender, has bought a painting
for a few bucks from an opp shop.
Despite almost trashing it, she now thinks it’s a Jackson Pollock worth
millions. In fact she’s certain it is. But when world-class art expert, Lionel
Percy (John Wood), flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer park
home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he really has no idea what
he’s about to discover.
Based on a true story, Bakersfield Mist is a comedy set in the present day.
