'Strangerland' is the kind of slow, bleak movie that I tend to like. Focus is squarely on the wife and husband's deteriorating marriage before, and during, their children's disappearance. More so on the personal turmoil that they bring upon themselves as a result of the whole ordeal. I felt all the pain and grief from the actors. They do a great job. The cinematography and direction are also excellent. I wish the same effort was put into the story. It ultimately goes nowhere. Nothing is ever resolved as we are led to believe. Scenes plod along with no real goal in mind. The ending is most definitely a disappointment. A shame considering the talent involved.

Outcasts in the Outback

A brother and sister go missing after a duststorm hits the rural Australian town they have recently relocated to - a local search committee is organized but soon enough questions creep up about the reason the family moved and reveals a family living in denial, trying to hide or ignore some deeply troubled issues. What seems like a straight-forward story on the surface goes much deeper and thanks to some great casting, the characters manage to bring that depth as well.

I have never been a huge fan of Nicole Kidman - whether it was the films or the characters, often one of the two rub me the wrong way.

This Australian-Irish movie stars Nicole Kidman, Joseph Fiennes and Hugo Weaving in lead roles. This Drama-Thriller has got a limited release in United States and will be available as video on demand.

Story revolves around finding two kids who have disappeared and how their parents cope with the situation. The emotional scenes are well acted by Kidman and Fiennes but the direction ruins the whole movie.

This movie is snail paced. The introductory scenes, though slow, are well shot and hence the audience will hope that the movie picks pace after it. Instead, will soon start to realise the amateurish direction and missed plots.

A lot of possible reasons for the disappearance are established in the movie but none of them are explain...
