Sometimes the best thing you can do with a film is go into it without knowing a thing and without any preconceptions. All you might want to note about this Aussie thriller is who displays their fine acting chops. Starring Hugo Weaving ( The Matrix), Ryan Kwanten ( True Blood), Jack Thompson ( Australia), Aaron Pedersen ( above) and Tasma Walton ( who has been a tad quiet on the acting front since her golden Blue Heelers days), the psychological thriller is set in the Queensland hinterland, which feels like it is in the middle of nowhere. It’s a slow- build, tense drama that entices with its deliberate silences and moody cinematography.
