Based on the acclaimed 1999 novel from author Julia Leigh, US star Willem Dafoe returned to screens earlier this year in Daniel Nettheim’s The Hunter (2011), a powerful and beautifully shot psychological thriller that follows one man’s search for the presumed extinct Tasmanian Tiger.

Can a human who has led an immoral life find connection and redemption too? A superb thriller full the the brim with unmissable performances, The Hunter also stars Sam Neill and Frances O’Connor.
