Description

How to Watch

When his childhood friend Luke apparently dies in a nasty murder-suicide, taking his wife and son with him, Australian Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk (Eric Bana) returns to his drought-stricken, outback hometown of Kiewarra for the funeral. Asked by the grieving parents to dig into the case, Falk decides to stick around for a while, which doesn’t sit well with several of the locals. It turns out that Kiewarra is a town with plenty of secrets. Elegiac flashbacks show Aaron and Luke as teens, perhaps implicated in the mysterious drowning death of their close friend Ellie. And so, the film presents two mysteries: one decades old, the other a fresh and bleeding wound. Despite being harassed by those who fear having their secrets revealed, Aaron ultimately makes discoveries that might prove Luke’s innocence … and his own. This tension-laced thriller is one of the current Australian box office’s biggest hits. (Alissa Simon)
