Nitram

Thriller 1h 52m 2021

AroView: An extraordinary psychological drama from accomplished director Justin Kurzel (Snowtown, True History of the Kelly Gang) depicting the events that led up to the 1996 Port Arthur massacre in Tasmania.

An atrocity that darkened Australia’s history and prompted an overhaul of the nation’s gun control laws, the perpetrator (played by Caleb Landry-Jones in another outstanding performance) was a mentally unstable and isolated man whose resentment and anger towards society resulted in the murder of 35 people in the busy tourist area of Port Arthur.

A powerful film which bravely explores the ethical implications of this tragic event while respecting the dignity of the victims, with tremendous acting support work from Judy Davis, Anthony LaPaglia and Essie Davis.

“In its quiet respect for the victims’ dignity, its uniformly outstanding performances and in apportioning responsibility only to those who shirked their responsibilities, and deploying a grief-struck compassion toward everyone else, Nitram may come to be recognized as one of the finest exemplars yet of the mass-shooting movie — inasmuch as we can stomach having an entire genre built around the phenomenon.” ~Jessica Kiang, Variety
