Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.

| Gripping and Bloody
Superb acting shines through every seen, Dani ferns and dripping blood. Director Jennifer Kent's choice of 4:3 aspect ratio adds a layer of confinement to this terrifying historical story of colonialism and evil. Heartbreaking, just heartbreaking. A take of revenge and genocide that deserves praise.
