Nitram 15 rating

Justin Kurzel's outstanding crime drama charts the true story of a disturbed young man whose anger builds to an inevitable crescendo, chillingly portrayed by Caleb Landry Jones (Best Actor Winner at Cannes 2021).

Drama 2021 112 mins

Director: Justin Kurzel



Nitram (Landry Jones) is a troubled young man who lives with his parents in a small Tasmanian town and is profoundly aware of his inability to fit in with the wider world. His father dreams of buying a B&B in the belief that it will bring the family closer; meanwhile Nitram finally makes a friend who tolerates his unpredictable behaviour. Despite this, his feelings of anger and loneliness build to an inevitable crescendo, culminating in an irreversible moment of violence. Nitram is a huge achievement from an outstanding cast and from Justin Kurzel (True History of the Kelly Gang, Macbeth), who has created a disturbing take on a true story that’s both thought-provoking and shocking.
