When the Australians make good movies, they make bloody good movies and Snowtown looks to be another harsh, brutal gem from down under. Just look at the incredible praise this movie has already had by watching the trailer, this could well be Autralia’s biggest film of the year.
The film is directed by Justin Kurzel and stars a bunch of newcomer’s who are given tough roles as the film is based on actual events. Controversially, it tells the true story of John Bunting, Australia’s most notorious serial killer. In the 1990’s he was the ringleader of a gang of thugs who killed twelve people around the Snowtown area in South Australia.
No details are available for a release date, but judging by the high praise this film has had, it will be hard to miss when it does arrive!
