Strangerland is Australian director Kim Farrant’s feature debut. 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 that has repercussions for him too.
Part thriller, part psychological drama, Strangerland erupts with talent and confident storytelling. It operates at such a high level, it is nearly impossible to believe this film is director Kim Farrant’s first feature. Enlivened by a phenomenal cast, including Nicole Kidman, who delivers one of the strongest performances of her career, Strangerland joins the ranks of Australia’s recent wave of stylish, “Elevated Genre” films and marks the emergence of another massive directing talent.
Exclusive One Week Season screening from June 11 to 17 at Luna Leederville.
