'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.

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 …
