The talk of Cannes - the first Australian film to screen in competition in 30 years, earning rave reviews and Caleb Landry Jones the best actor award - Justin Kurzel’s (Snowtown, Macbeth) NITRAM depicts one of the darker chapters of modern Australia’s history. Taking place in the days before the 1996 Port Arthur massacre, the film portrays the lead-up to the event that took 35 lives. In an intense and nuanced lead performance, Jones isn’t the sole highlight of the cast: Essie David, Judy Davis and Anthony LaPaglia all deliver exceptional support. Kurzel’s drama doesn’t show the event itself, merely the preceding events - yet NITRAM is a chilling chapter of the life of a boy who became a mass murderer, and a tragic event that directly led to the Australian government restricting the sales of weaponry.
