★★★★ – Time Out

"★★★★ – The power and sheer command of Kent’s direction enforced this film’s grip" – The Guardian
The Babadook director Jennifer Kent returns with this brutal tale of revenge, winner of the Special Jury Prize at 2018’s Venice International Film Festival.
1825 and a young Irish female convict chases a British army officer 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, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.
