The producers of the internationally cherished Animal Kingdom adapt Julia Leigh’s acclaimed novel, a psychological drama set in the Tasmanian wilderness.
Martin (Dafoe) is a mercenary hired by a mysterious European biotech company to track down the last remaining Tasmanian Tiger - previously presumed extinct. Also stars Sam Neill (The Piano) and Frances O’Connor (Mansfield Park).
"Both a classic tale of man versus beast and a chilling exploration of the ethics involved when the goals of multinational corporations conflict with the natural world... an allegory charting one troubled man’s foray into dual wildernesses: the remote Tasmanian hills and his own soul." (Toronto International Film Festival 2011)
