Overview

Adapted from David Harrower’s prize-winning play Blackbird, Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn star in this brilliant and unsettling exploration of a dark and deeply destructive relationship. With deeply unresolved questions about her past, Una (Rooney Mara) travels to another city, turning up unannounced at Ray’s (Ben Mendelsohn) work and dredging up a decade-old experience that he thought he’d left behind.

Director Benedict Andrews’ remarkable cinematic debut (based on Scottish playwright David Harrower’s Blackbird) interrogates the psychology of abuse with precision, intelligence and restraint. Shifting us through an enormous range of intellectual and emotional positions, this is filmmaking artistry of the highest order, from writing and performances to the unsettling, moody score from Jed Kurzel (Macbeth, Snowtown).
