Goldstone (M)

Goldstone is a crime thriller written and directed by Ivan Sen. It is a sequel to Mystery Road and stars Aaron Pedersen, Alex Russell, Jacki Weaver, David Wenham and David Gulpilil. Indigenous Detective Jay Swan arrives in the frontier town of Goldstone on a missing persons enquiry. What seems like a simple light duties investigation opens a web of crime and corruption. Jay must pull his life together and bury his differences with young local cop Josh, so together they can bring justice to Goldstone. Goldstone is one of the key Aussie films of the year with a tough cast, fine playing and a vivid sense of time and dusty, dangerous place.
