MON­DAY STRANGER­LAND

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

9.30PM, ONE ★★

All the build­ing blocks are in place for this de­mand­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal drama: a com­pelling set­ting, stun­ning cin­e­matog­ra­phy, and fair-to-fine per­for­mances. And yet, the more you try to im­merse your­self in Stranger­land, the less it fails to stand up to scru­tiny. Ni­cole Kid­man and Joseph Fi­ennes star as a trou­bled couple whose teenage chil­dren have dis­ap­peared shortly af­ter the fam­ily re­lo­cate to the Out­back. The film tries to main­tain a mys­tique that only makes the screen­play more im­pen­e­tra­ble.
