Rating: [R16] Rape, violence, cruelty & offensive language.

“Weaving themes of colonialism and class into the broad strokes of a won’t-stop-can’t-stop revenge potboiler, the film marks a step forward for the Australian director in terms of ambition and scope.”~The Guardian

Aroview: Brazen, unsentimental Australian survival drama from the director of THE BABADOOK, set in 1825 in Van Dieman's Land (Tasmania), where a deeply traumatised Irish woman seeks revenge on the man who killed her family, with the reluctant help of an Aboriginal tracker.

Grapples with the nature of evil and the futility of vengeance, from the perspectives of two brutalised survivors of the misogyny and racism that characterised this period of Australian's dark history.
