6.35PM, FOXTEL PREMIERE ★★★
The previous screenwriting credits of Joel Edgerton (The Square, The Rover) have indicated there is much more to this Aussie actor than meets the eye. With The Gift, his directorial debut, Edgerton has crafted a ripping mainstream thriller. He also stars as a mysterious drifter looking to reconnect with an old school friend who can barely remember him (Jason Bateman). Pulpy, but lives up to its potential.
