quietearth [Film Festival 12.02.11] trailer thriller drama



With the past few years seeing a huge resurgence in Australian cinema, I have to say I'm a bit disappointed with how this looks. Considering the same productions companies behind The Square and the awesome zombie short I love Sarah Jane produced it, I was expecting something grittier. Even with Joel Edgerton starring, it looks like director Kieran Darcy-Smith's first feature is using the same polish Hollywood does.

Four friends lose themselves in a carefree South-East Asian holiday. Only three come back. Dave and Alice return home to their young family desperate for answers about Jeremy's mysterious disappearance. When Alice's sister Steph returns not long after, a nasty secret is revealed about the night her boyfriend went missing. But it is only the first of many. Who amongst them knows what happened on that fateful night when they were dancing under a full moon in Cambodia?

Absolutely outstanding movie. Brilliant. The jumping back-and-forth from their time at the South East Asian resort to being back in Australia was superbly balanced....not overdone like some movies. Terrifyingly realistic. Joel Edgerton delivers the performance of a lifetime.
