Genre: Crime, thriller
Duration: 110 mins

Indigenous detective, Jay Swan, (Aaron Pedersen) arrives to investigate a missing persons enquiry in the frontier town of Goldstone, overseen by Mayor Jacki Weaver and company hatchet man, David Wenham. What seems like a simple investigation opens out into a web of crime and corruption. A striking film to watch, but a better and bigger one to think about. The key to unlocking this ambitious genre hybrid- a Australian film classic and an outback noir masterpiece- is understanding that Goldstone is a country, not a town, and its name is Australia.
