What would you do if you witnessed some of your friends committing an horrendous crime? What would you do if you saw a friend being raped? Would you keep silent and pretend it never happened? or would you go to the police?
These are the questions faced by the protagonist Jared, played by the talented and honest Laurence Breuls.
This critically aclaimed Australian drama lays focus on not only Jared's reactions and feelings about the crime but also on the friends and family of who this tragedy has destroyed their lives. This movie details how each friend comes to grips with this tragic and real crime that has been prevalent in our society for a long time.
Blackrock confront's powerful issues such as rape, guilt, family and peer pressures and trust/mis-trust with such realism, that it begins to take on the feel of a real-life documentary on the truama that these young adults are living through.
If you get the opportunity to view this film, please dont deny yourself. The script is powerful and focused and extremely well paced. The actors perform their roles exceptionally well, and deliver their lines with an unflinching raw intesity.
An Australian film which is most-worthy of adding to your movie collection.
