THE DRY
2021, IFC Films, 118 min, Australia/USA, Dir: Robert Connolly

Federal Agent Aaron Falk (Eric Bana) returns to his home town of Kiewarra after an absence of more than 20 years to attend the funeral of his childhood friend, Luke (Martin Dingle Wall), who allegedly killed his wife and child before taking his own life – a victim of the madness that has ravaged this community after more than a decade of drought. When Falk reluctantly agrees to stay and investigate the crime, he opens up an old wound – the death of 17-year-old Ellie Deacon (BeBe Bettencourt). Falk begins to suspect these two crimes, separated by decades, are connected. As he struggles to prove not only Luke’s innocence but also his own, Falk finds himself pitted against the prejudice towards him and pent-up rage of a terrified community. Based on the global bestseller.
