More Info:
  • Boyd van Hoeij

    The film remains stranded in a sort of genre no man’s land.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jenni Miller

    Strangerland starts off promisingly enough, but it just can't decide where it wants to go, or even how to get there.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    The directorial debut of Australian filmmaker Kim Farrant is undone by a series of overwrought, miscalculated scenes that can’t be redeemed by an expert cast that’s fully committed to the heavy-handedness.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Best of all is this setting — stark, reddish brown and sun-baked, the sort of place one only goes when every other possibility has been exhausted, and only movie stars could avoid turning instantly tanned and weathered.

  • Jesse Hassenger

    Intentionally or not, Farrant and her screenwriters leave a hole at the center of their film.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Though Kidman is solid as a wife and mom tormented by her daughter's secret erotic life, Strangerland never successfully welds its central mystery with its psychosexual drapings, leaving neither especially interesting.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Maybe the dingo ate their screenplay.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The brooding and emotional prickliness gets overwhelming. Kidman tries her best to flesh out her character, but writer-director Kim Farrant gives this still-undervalued actress little to do.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Brad Wheeler

    Eerie and unpredictable, Strangerland holds attention, even if traditional suspense tricks are avoided like they were dingos at the daycare.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    It’s hard to get over the movie’s haunting atmosphere. It may be just another story of kids in peril, but this one’s particularly hard to shake.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    Director Kim Farrant’s debut feature is beautifully shot and offers some powerful, well-acted moments from a strong cast, but it’s just relentlessly dreary. Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    The progressive wrinkles...are both the fascination and the frustration of Strangerland, which strains credulity with its secrets and revelations to facilitate its surprises.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Too much of Strangerland simply feels dodgy and overdetermined, veering between art-film pretensions and melodramatic gestures, and governed by ambitions that outstrip the filmmakers’ abilities.
