TRUST NO ONE

Goldstone

IVAN SEN
Australia, 2016
110 minutes, Color
Official website

Winner of four prizes at the Film Critics Circle of Australia—including Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay—the sun-bleached film noir Goldstone is the powerful standalone sequel to writer-director-cinematographer-editor-composer Ivan Sen's 2013 breakthrough film Mystery Road. The action revolves around determined yet damaged Aboriginal cop Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen), who arrives in the eponymous Queensland frontier mining town to investigate a missing Chinese woman. In short order, he uncovers a web of power, corruption, and lies that threatens his life. Along with young local cop and unlikely ally Josh Waters (Alex Russell), Swan forces a kinetic showdown that wins the battle—but maybe not the war. The great David Gulpilil (Walkabout, the 2003 FFDC entry Ten Canoes), Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook), and David Wenham (The Bank, FFDC 2002) are pungent in support. Deftly mixing genre thrills with hot-button social issues, Goldstone is an atmospheric triumph.—Eddie Cockrell

Thursday's screening will be followed by a reception sponsored by the Embassy of Australia
