Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Around this spare story...director Warwick Thornton constructs a searing indictment of frontier racism as remarkable for its sonic restraint as its visual expansiveness.
Fresh: Spare, deliberately paced, and almost Biblical in its search for moral justice in a harsh and lawless landscape.
Fresh: A bleak story presented with great style, it's a finely made Australian western that demonstrates the malleability of that most American of genres as well as the impressive gifts of Indigenous filmmaker Warwick Thornton.
Fresh: [Warwick] Thornton delicately peels back all the layers of Aussie injustice in this film, but what's most unnerving is that the story proves to be so universal.
