Director: Ray Lawrence

Writers: Raymond Carver, Beatrix Christian

Stars: Laura Linney, Gabriel Byrne, Deborra-Lee Furness, John Howard

Country: Australia

A group of men (Gabriel Byrne, John Howard, Stelios Yiakmis) on a fishing trip makes the morally questionable decision to delay reporting the discovery of a murdered woman’s body. Claire (Laura Linney), the wife of one of the men, tries to understand the reasoning behind such thoughtlessness.

During the traditional forty days of Lent, Novocastrians will have the opportunity to attend a film festival with a difference. Christ Church Cathedral will be the dramatic backdrop for the screening of a series of international films, providing a space to explore the universal themes of love, redemption and hope. More information…
