Directed by Jennifer Kent | 2019

With Aisling Franciosi, Baykali Ganambarr, Sam Claflin

Please note, this film features potentially triggering acts of sexual violence. It also contains violence towards Tasmanian Aboriginal people and children. The reason for this is to show an authentic and honest representation of Tasmanian history during colonization.

Australia, 1825. In an attempt to regain her freedom, Clare, a 21-year-old Irish convict (Franciosi), becomes the victim of a harrowing crime at the hands of her abusive master Lieutenant Hawkins (Claflin). Determined to pursue him, she enlists the help of Billy, a young Aboriginal tracker (Ganambarr) who grudgingly agrees to take her north to track down Hawkins. Both suffering their own traumas and mutual distrust—and amid fighting between the original inhabitants of the land and its colonizers in what is now known as the Black War—Clare and Billy journey deeper into the rugged wilderness, gradually learning to find empathy for one another. Jennifer Kent (The Babadook) helms this brutal and breathtaking meditation on the consequences of violence and the true cost of seeking vengeance.
