Summary *Strong Violence, Drug Use, Very Coarse Language* Writer/director David Michod's debut feature is a powerful crime drama exploring the tense battle between a criminal family, the police and the ordinary lives caught in the middle. Newcomer James Frecheville stars as 17-year-old Joshua 'J' Cody who moves in with his estranged family following the death of his mother. Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Jacki Weaver stars as Janine 'Smurf' Cody, his doting grandmother who keeps a watchful eye on all that is going on. Ben Mendelsohn stars as Janine's eldest son Andrew 'Pope' Cody, an armed robber who is in hiding from a gang of renegade detectives. Sullivan Stapleton stars as Craig, a successful but volatile drug dealer, with Luke Ford as the youngest Cody, Darren, who blindly follows his older brothers' every lead. As Pope's business partner and best friend, Barry Brown (Joel Edgerton), decides that he wants to sever his ties with his old school mate, tensions between the family and the police explode. J finds he is at the centre of a revenge plot that turns his family upside down and throws him into the path of senior homicide detective, Nathan Leckie (Guy Pearce). Winner of 2010 Sundance World Cinema Grand Jury Prize. Jackie Weaver was a nominee for the 2011 Golden Globes and Academy Awards Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role.
