Gorgeous… a masterpiece of outback noir.”

The Guardian


Indigenous Detective Jay Swan 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, so together they can bring justice to Goldstone.

Nominated for 5 AACTA awards (Australian version of the Oscars), including Best Film, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing & Best Production Design, this is the latest film from acclaimed Director/Writer/Composer/Cinematographer/Editor Ivan Sen, the creator of Mystery Road.

Winner of the following awards from the 2017 Australian Film Critics Association:  Best Director (Ivan Sen), Best Actor (Aaron Pedersen), Best Supporting Actress (2 time Oscar® Nominee Jacki Weaver), Best Cinematography (Ivan Sen).


“Goldstone is our next great Western. That may sound like an oxymoron given that the film takes place in Australia, but it’s a paragon of a genre that has increasingly questioned history’s displacement of indigenous people.” — The Daily Beast

“A compelling mix of slow-burn mystery and explosive action set against the harsh beauty of the Outback landscape.” — Movie Talk

“Why isn’t Pedersen – a world-class brooder with soulful eyes and a singed masculinity – an international star?” — Los Angeles Times
