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.
