Directed by Justin Kurzel (Blue Tongue), Snowtown stars Daniel Henshall, Lucas Pittaway, Craig Coyne, Richard Green, Louise Harris, Anthony Groves, Brendan Rock, Bob Adriaens and Keiran Schwerdt.
When sixteen-year-old Jamie (Pittaway) is introduced to a charismatic man, a friendship begins. As the relationship grows so do Jamie’s suspicions, until he finds his world threatened by both his loyalty for, and fear of, his newfound father-figure John Bunting (Henshall), Australia’s most notorious serial killer.
Snowtown premiered at the 64th annual Cannes Film Festival earlier this month to rave reviews, even earning a Special Mention from the jury president at the announcement of the Grand Prix winner for the Critics’ Week section.
Revolver Entertainment will release Snowtown later this year.
