“…well-crafted thriller from down under.”
Murder, revenge and justice bring Australia’s hottest actors together for this noir thriller
Toronto, ON (September 13, 2010) – Michael Henry’s debut feature thriller BLAME took centre stage at the Toronto International Film Festival, Sunday evening for its International premiere to a sold out audience.
Selected to the Discovery Program at TIFF, the thriller centres on a group of young vigilantes who fall from grace as they seek revenge for a sexual betrayal. When the truth is out, they find themselves on the dark side of justice.
Five friends violently attack a man in his remote country house. Their plan: the perfect murder. It all goes horribly wrong and in the aftermath, questions are raised about the events leading up to that day. As lies and secrets are revealed, the dynamic of the group crumbles and friends begin to question each other’s motives. Ultimately, the quest for justice drives the friends to a place of no return. Energetic and visually stunning, BLAME is a psychological thriller that grabs audiences by the throat and takes them along for an intense ride
BLAME’s star-studded cast includes Oz up-and-comers Sophie Lowe (Beautiful Kate), Kestie Morassi (Wolf Creek), Damian de Montemas (Somersault), Simon Stone (Jindabyne, Balibo), Mark Leonard Winter (Van Diemen’s Land) and Ashley Zukerman (The Pacific).
