Movie Info

This Australian drama, following events during the 24 hours prior to a horrible (but unseen) crime, is adapted from the award-winning 1991 Gordon Graham play, which was inspired by the real-life rape-murder of a nurse in Sydney, Australia. After serving time for an assault on a liquor-store owner, troubled Brett Sprague (David Wenham, repeating the role he created onstage) is released from prison and returns home to his brothers, mother, and girlfriend. As Brett begins to drink his way through the day, his anger and suspicions turn into a psychopathic rage. Shown at the 1998 Berlin Film Festival.
