Australian director Jennifer Kent follows up 'The Babadook' with this brutal revenge thriller set in 1825. Clare (Aisling Franciosi), a young Irish convict, chases British officer Lieutenant Hawkins (Sam Claflin) through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy (Baykali Ganambarr), who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past. ★★★★ "The power and sheer command of Kent’s direction enforced this film’s grip on me" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★ "This uncompromising, unflinching meditation on violence should be seen as widely as possible" - John Nugent, Empire ★★★★ "A film that bruises the soul." - Clarisse Loughrey, Independent ★★★★★ "Through all the trauma, there's resilience and the promise of a new dawn." - Stephen Garret, Time Out
