January’s Film in Discussion: The Horseman (2008)

January 6, 2011

The Horseman (2008), written and directed by Steven Kastrissios, is a film I’ve been hearing about from my blogger friends, all of which have given it up high marks. Although it has been criticized for its brutality, you just might want to check out this SXSW selection. Here’s the synopsis for this Australian thriller from its Netflix page:

“Unsettled by his teenage daughter’s (Hannah Levien) untimely and suspicious death, a vengeful father (Peter Marshall) sets out on a purposeful road trip across rural Queensland, Australia, to find out who killed his little girl — and to make them pay. Along the way, he becomes a father figure to a troubled young runaway (Caroline Marohasy) who might be the one link he has left to his own humanity.”

I hope this has already intrigued you. It’s easily accessible on Netflix, since it’s on Instant Watch, so no excuse not to see this one! Be sure to check it out. Just as before, you’ll read my thoughts along with the rest of the bloggers on this site at the end of the month. Happy hunting!
