John Grant, a schoolteacher in a remote Australian village, finishes up for the year and travels to Sydney. However, he is waylaid in the Yabba, a mining town in the middle of nowhere. Befriended by the local policeman (legendary Australian actor Chips Rafferty), Grant soon finds himself drawn into a macho world of heavy drinking, gambling and fighting. A terrifying study of masculinity in crisis, Ted Kotcheff's film finally receives the accolade it deserves. BBFC Certified 18 - Contains strong scenes of kangaroo hunting and slaughter ★★★★★ "Forget 'The Hangover', this hardcore 1971 offering from the Australian New Wave shows the true hell of outback violence" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "A well-warranted remastering of his Aussie new wave classic" - Kim Newman, Empire
