GOLDSTONE: Ivan Sen’s Hit Aussie Crime Drama Gets A September U.S. Release
Mystery Road helmer Ivan Sen’s hit sequel, Goldstone, has already seen a raft of upworthy reviews since opening to Australia audiences in 2016. The film is finally poised for a U.S. DVD/Blu-Ray rollout on September 11 via Lightyear Entertainment and with an announcement as of Tuesday courtesy of MVD:
Lightyear Entertainment presents the Australian production Goldstone, a noir thriller set in the Outback. The film was written, directed, shot, edited and composed by Ivan Sen.
Indigenous Detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen, Mystery Road) arrives in the frontier town of Goldstone on a missing persons inquiry. What seems like a simple investigation opens a web of crime, corruption, trampling of indigenous people’s land rights, and human trafficking. Jay must pull his life together and bury his differences with young local cop Josh (Alex Russell, SWAT), so together they can bring justice to Goldstone.
Also starring 2-time Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook) as the corrupt mayor, David Wenham (Lord of the Rings) as the greedy mine director, David Gulpilil (Crocodile Dundee) as the indigenous man who can’t be bought, and Cheng Pei-Pei (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) as the unscrupulous madam.
Goldstone was nominated for five Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards for Best Film, Best Direction, Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing and Best Production Design.
