Caleb Landry Jones puts in a terrific central performance in this gnawing dramatisation of the infamous 1996 Port Arthur massacre in Australia.


In 1990s Tasmania, Nitram is a social outcast who is teased and bullied by everyone. Living a life of isolation and frustration. Although they try to be patient, even his parents struggle to cope with his quirks. Despite his struggles, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with eccentric wealthy neighbour Helen (Essie Davis), who sees him as compassionate and considerate, though wary of his obsession with explosives and guns. Bristling against insults from everyone around him, Nitram focusses his rage on the new owners of a property his father wanted to buy.


Writer-director Justin Kurzel uses close-up camerawork to plunge us fully into the perspective of the central character, who is played with brutal honesty by Jones. Leading a fantastic cast, he is terrific as a young man who marches to his own beat and doesn’t understand why everyone dislikes him. While Kurzel never explicitly exonerates Nitram, he never vilifies him either, instead allowing the opportunity for a powerfully insightful portrayal of events. A brave, level-headed retelling of a shocking true story.
