BFI London Film Festival: Mystery Road
A murder unravels the lives of one small town
The BFI's film festival brings an amazing selection of films to London. From documentaries to love stories and hard-hitting drama, if it’s creating a buzz, the BFI know about it. Mystery Road brings together a bright cast, to tell a dark tale. Featuring Aaron Pedersen, Hugo Weaving, and Jack Thompson, this slow-burning film follows the story of an Aboriginal rookie cop who returns home. Finding himself alone, he must investigate the murder of a teenage girl in the Outback. The camera really takes in the balmy and sparse setting, allowing the viewer to simmer in the heat. Seating allocated on arrival.
"...he's once again confounded expectations. Once again, the results are brilliant."
