The Sydney Film Festival teased its 2015 program by announcing a selection of titles this morning.
Australian film buffs will be pleased to know that Kim Farrant’s Stangerland is a part of that lineup.
Cinema Australia was asked to remove a leaked trailer of the film late last year so hopefully this news will reveal an authentic one in the coming months. What we saw was pretty impressive.
Synopsis: Nicole Kidman makes a welcome return to Australian independent cinema in this striking film. The teenage children of Catherine (Kidman) and Matthew (Joseph Fiennes) mysteriously disappear from the outback town the family has recently settled in. When local cop Rae (Hugo Weaving) tries to solve the case, he uncovers a dark history with repercussions for him too.
