Nitram

Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) has gone about this task with blazing moral integrity, seeking to explain the apparently inexplicable in human terms. ★★★★★ ” Daily Telegraph

Caleb Landry-Jones, fresh from winning Best Actor at Cannes plays NITRAM, a deeply troubled young man who lives with his mother (Judy Davis) and father (Anthony LaPaglia) in suburban Australia in the Mid 1990s.
He lives a life of isolation and frustration at never being able to fit in. That is until he unexpectedly finds a close friend in a reclusive heiress, Helen (Essie Davis). However when that friendship meets its tragic end, and Nitram’s loneliness and anger grow, he begins a slow descent into a nightmare that culminates in the most nihilistic and heinous of acts.
