    Where To Buy

    Mullet is available on DVD from Jetty Distribution


"Mullet is about a sweet fish that no-one wants to eat. It's about wild card Eddie Maloney, whose nickname is Mullet. And it's about life in a sleepy country fishing town. But most of all, its about life, family, making do with what you've got and how to get what you want. David Caesar's Mullet is a simply an outstanding Australian film that shouldn't be missed". Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
