Rising star Caleb Landry Jones (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) delivers an award-winning performance as one of Australia’s most infamous murderers in this biographical crime drama centred on the circumstances that led to the devastating Port Arthur massacre in 1996.

Our screening on Sat 2 Jul will include a recorded Q+A with director Justin Kurzel and actor Essie Davis.

Justin Kurzel
strong threat, language, infrequent drug misuse

Working with screenwriter Shaun Grant for the first time in a decade, director Justin Kurzel (Snowtown, Macbeth) gives us a glimpse into the troubled life of Tasmanian mass murderer, Martin Bryant (aka Nitram).

Becoming increasingly isolated following a series of challenging events, including the breakdown of an unlikely friendship with a retiring heiress, Nitram experiences a psychological meltdown that reaches its apex with a mass shooting.

Crafted with the same creative eye as Kurzel and Grant’s internationally acclaimed debut collaboration, Snowtown, and met with similar levels of critical praise following its premiere at Cannes last year (at which Landry Jones won Best Actor), Nitram promises to disturb and intrigue in equal measure; a haunting character study by one of the most exciting, daring filmmakers working in modern cinema.
