  • Description

    In the harsh, unforgiving landscape of the Outback, Charlie Burns (Guy Pearce) is presented with an impossible proposition by local law enforcer Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone). To save his younger brother Mikey from the gallows he must track down and kill Arthur (Danny Huston), his psychotic older brother.

    While Charlie is forced to choose between revenge, loyalty and his own conscience, Stanley, having given up a civilised life in England, is determined to impose law and order and shield his innocent wife Martha (Emily Watson) from the brutalities of their new surroundings.  A palpable sense of foreboding festers against the oppressive heat, as each character takes on their punishing moral dilemmas and the inevitable cycle of violence reaches its bloody conclusion. 

    Newly restored in 4K director John Hillcoat (The Road, Triple 9) and writer Nick Cave’s modern classic is released as a new 4K UHD, along with a Blu-ray disc featuring extensive new and archive extras. A release to satisfy existing fans and garner new ones.

    • Orders sent via the Express Delivery service will be dispatched the same day if ordered by 2pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).
    • We will aim to dispatch pre-orders so that you receive them on the release date.
    • Where an item is 'Back in stock soon', we'll aim to receive more stock within a week and will dispatch any orders once the shipment has arrived.
    • Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. In this instance, we'll send weekly updates to keep you aware. 
    • Royal Mail strike updates - As you have no doubt seen, Royal Mail will be striking on 30th September and 1st October and as such, we are expecting there to be a few delays with delivery as a result of these. Don’t worry though, we’ll continue to dispatch your orders and will get them to you as soon as we can! Thanks for your patience and understanding in the meantime.
