Synopsis

Winner of the Golden Camera Cannes 2009, indigenous director Thornton points his camera at the characters of two troubled teenagers. Petrol-sniffing Samson and artist Delilah leave their homes to head for Alice Springs. Their adventures are bleak, depicted in documentary-like fashion, but with a powerful upbeat conclusion. The director's alcoholic brother plays Gonzo, a tramp who befriends them (and scene-steals with a great rendition of Tom Waits' Jesus gonna be here).

Critics

open_quote The honest naturalism of the two young leads is the main reason for the film's intense grip and power. close_quote Frank Hatherley, Screen International
