NITRAM (2021)
Starring Caleb Landry Jones, Essie Davis, Judy Davis, Anthony Lapaglia and Sean Keenan. Directed by Justin Kurzel.

Nitram lives with his mother and father in suburban Australia in the Mid 1990s. He lives a life of isolation and frustration at never being able to fit in. That is until he unexpectedly finds a close friend in a reclusive heiress, Helen. However when that friendship meets its tragic end, and Nitram’s loneliness and anger grow, he begins a slow descent into a nightmare that culminates in the most nihilistic and heinous of acts.

TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG (2020)
Starring George Mackay, Russell Crowe, Nicholas Hoult, Essie Davis, Travis Fimmel, Sean Keenan, Dacre Montgomery, Harry Greenwood, Thomasin McKenzie and Earl Cave. Directed by Justin Kurzel.

Spanning the younger years of Ned’s life to the time leading up to his death, the film explores the blurred boundaries between what is bad and what is good, and the motivations for the demise of its hero. Youth and tragedy collide in the Kelly Gang, and at the beating heart of this tale is the fractured and powerful love story between a mother and a son.

REVIEWS True History of the Kelly Gang - A magnificent deconstruction of the great Australian antihero

Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain.

MACBETH (2015)
Starring Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Elizabeth Debecki, David Thewlis, Sean Harris, Jack Reynor and Paddy Considine. Directed by Justin Kurzel.

Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a truthful reimagining of what wartime must have really been like for one of Shakespeare's most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war-torn 11th Century Scotland.

Macbeth - A harrowing and haunting adaptation of Shakespeare's masterpiece
