Film

Caleb Landry Jones is perfectly cast in Justin Kurzel's multi-award winning film depicting the events leading up to one of the darkest chapters in Australian history.

The film is brilliant, marking another extraordinary achievement from Kurzel, who has a penchant for evoking gut-sinking emotional atmosphere.

Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian

Nitram (Caleb Landry Jones) lives with his mother (Judy Davis) and father (Anthony LaPaglia) in suburban Tasmiania in the mid 1990s. He lives a life of isolation and frustration at never being able to fit in. That is until he unexpectedly finds a close friend in a reclusive heiress, Helen (Essie Davis). However when that friendship meets its tragic end, and Nitram’s loneliness and anger festers, he begins a slow descent into a nightmare that culminates in the most nihilistic and heinous of acts.
