THE GIFT

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

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.
