The first of Ivan Sen’s Western-noir series – followed by Goldstone and a TV adaptation – with the magnetic Aaron Pedersen as Jay Swan: a rookie detective returning to his home town to solve the grisly murder of a young Aboriginal girl.

This is a stylistic departure for Sen and wonderfully maps the conventions of the classical Western onto the rough and unforgiving landscape of Outback Queensland.

A gripping and lively reimagining of the quintessential cop drama reframed in an unmistakably Australian context.

With Hugo Weaving, Jack Thompson and Jack Charles.
