James Grecheville holds his own as young J Cody among a fine corps of veteran Australian actors in the directorial debut of former film-journalist Michôd. The teenager's mother dies of a heroin overdose and he goes to live with his criminal family, presided over by Grandma Smurf (Jacki Weaver) in a sociopathic approach to the human condition. The narrative cleverly downplays the gangster violence, keeping the audience on the edge.


open_quote It's a remarkable film: A gritty, gut-churning, crime thriller based on a true story. Its greatness lies in its unwavering fidelity to human nature and the unstoppable laws of the wild. close_quote Amy Biancolli, Sf Chronicle
