MVP is its own award

It’s easy to get excited about Byron’s new MVP restaurant in Lawson St – it’s not only got standout dishes such as Blue Spirulina Linguine with blue swimmer crab and Yamba prawns, and Fettuccine al Ragù with Hayters Hill beef ragù sauce, feta and baby peas, but it’s also all sustainably sourced from local growers, available in takeaway (even delivered if you’re close to town) and more than half of the menu is plant-based.

The annual French Film Festival was one of the many nation-wide events that had to be cancelled because of COVID.

The good news is, with cinemas opening with social distancing in place, this wonderful celebration of film will be resumed, everywhere except Melbourne, with sessions screening in Byron from 14 July.

The Films include How To Be A Good Wife which is set in 1968 and is about the head of a housekeeping school for teenage girls, who has her pristine life implode when she encounters her long-lost first love, whilst simultaneously learning that her business is on the brink of financial ruin.

Other gems are My Days of Glory, about a former child-star given the chance of a lead role in a big-budget biopic, but he must decide whether it’s worth casting aside the comforting familiarity of failure in order to finally stand on his own two feet.

And the classic is Les Miserables – set in the troubled Parisian district of Montfermeil, this searing tale follows cop Stéphane, who works on the fringes of both the city and society.
