Clubland, internationally known as Introducing the Dwights, is a 2007 Australian comedy film, directed by Cherie Nowlan and written by Keith Thompson. It stars an ensemble cast which includes Khan Chittenden, Emma Booth, Richard Wilson and Brenda Blethyn. It was released in Australia on 28 June 2007, and selected for screening at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival where it was picked up by Warner Independent Pictures for a $4 million deal and gained glowing reviews.
The film opened in the U.S. on 4 July holiday weekend, the first Australian film ever to do so. The film was nominated for eleven awards at the 2007 Australian Film Institute Awards, winning the award for best supporting actress for Emma Booth.
Life for shy 21-year-old Tim Maitland (Khan Chittenden) is not always smooth sailing. His mum Jean (Brenda Blethyn) is a cafeteria worker by day who hits the comedy club circuit by night, while his dad John (Frankie J. Holden) is busy trying to recapture his fifteen minutes of fame from when he was a country and western singer back in 1975. But when the feisty beautiful Jill (Emma Booth) walks into Tim's life, things seem to be looking up. Unfortunately, there's another woman in Tim's life, one who will stand between him and the perfect romance... his mother!
