Due to embargo we can't give a review but we had a magnificent time at the film preview at HOYTS Melbourne Central including beverages and themed cupcakes. Then we travelled around to Melbourne institution Cutler & Co, Andrew McConnell’s fine diner in Fitzroy, where we enjoyed a one-off, sprawling banquet inspired by the theme “good and evil”, a culinary extension of Queen Ingrith’s own banquet in the film. The restaurant was adorned by elaborate arrangements by beloved Melbourne florist Hattie Molloy.
