SNOW­TOWN (2011) SBS ONE, 9.30PM, AV15+, CRIME

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Based on the events lead­ing up to what is known as South Aus­tralia’s “bod­ies in the bar­rels mur­ders”, this gritty true crime drama is the chill­ing fea­ture de­but from Justin Kurzel. Daniel Hen­shall is ter­ri­fy­ing as mass mur­derer John Bunt­ing, while Lu­cas Pittaway is haunting 16-yearold Jamie, who is drawn into a dark and sadis­tic world when Bunt­ing starts dat­ing his mother. Play­ing out like a night­mare, the beau­ti­fully shot film of­fers some in­sight into how the events hap­pened. Boast­ing su­perb lead per­for­mances, Snow­town isn’t for the faint­hearted. ★★★★
