Ivan Sen’s follow-up to Mystery Road, the critically acclaimed GOLDSTONE, is coming to Australian homes this October on all the formats you kids love. Releasing on digital on the 19 October, the DVD/Blu-ray release will follow on 26 October 2016.
Named by us clever folks here at The Reel Bits as one of the best films of the year (so far), our five-star review said that it was “slick, darkly comic, and always thrilling. This is the best of what cinema has to offer.” Not simply begging for pull-quotes (even if it did work), it’s truly one of Sen’s (and Australia’s) most ambitious films to date.
The film follows the story of Indigenous Detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen) who arrives in the frontier town of “Goldstone” on a missing persons case and gets wrapped up in a case that is political, opening up a web of crime and corruption implicating the local Mayor, Mining Boss and Aboriginal Land Council.
The DVD/Blu-ray itself includes commentary with Ivan Sen & Aaron Pedersen and ‘Behind the Scenes’ interviews with Ivan and the key cast, making this one of the must own packages of the year. Continue to support quality Australian art by buying a legit copy of this when it hits retailers in October. Or buy one for yourself, and another for an early Christmas present.
