Charismatic rancher Phil Burbank inspires fear and awe in those around him. When his brother brings home a new wife and her son, Phil torments them until he finds himself exposed to the possibility of love.

Directed by Academy Award winner, Jane Campion, working with an incredible cast including accomplished actors Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Based on the novel by Thomas Savage.

This is a film that is set to become an instant classic, with heightened buzz and a positive critical reaction out of Venice, Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals thus far. This is a must-see for a discerning film audience.

“Benedict Cumberbatch and Jane Campion, take a bow. The pair have united to deliver an indecently powerful western that is instantly, on day two of the Venice Film Festival, the movie to beat for the festival’s prestigious Golden Lion award, and indeed the frontrunner at next year’s Oscars… But what they’ve done here is nothing short of extraordinary.” – The Times

“It’s a film which shimmers with intelligence, and if the plot isn’t clear until the very last scene, well, it’s worth the wait. When that scene arrives, the purpose of every previous scene snaps into sharp focus, leaving you with the urge to go back to the beginning and watch the whole thing again.”  BBC
“It’s a brawny, brooding drama about the wreckage caused by men, beautifully framed in muted neutral tones as the camera circles the ranch-house with a deliberate, stealthy tread.” The Guardian
