Running Time: 112 minutes

Directed by Ivan Sen

Starring Aaron Pedersen, Hugo Weaving, and Ryan Kwanten

Synopsis: An Australian-based mystery with western overtones, this is the gritty story of an aborigine detective (Aaron Pedersen) who returns to his remote home town after a decade in the city and investigates the murder of a local girl that finds him at odds with both the local white-dominated police (including Hugo Weaving) and his former friends and family.

What the Critics Are Saying:

“A new classic with a rich tide of ideas unraveling and washing around the edges…no easy explanations, no Hollywood signposts, just a genre piece of great complexity and troubling beauty. An important film, a stunningly entertaining one, and a great one.”
–Lauren Carroll Harris, Concrete Playground

“Cormac McCarthy is yet to set one of his sparse, existential tales in the Australian outback, and he may never need to now Ivan Sen has picked up the burden with Mystery Road.”
–Simon Mirado, Quickfix
