In an outback town, Jay Swan, an Indigenous cowboy detective, returns home to solve the murder of a teenage Indigenous girl whose body is found under the highway trucking route out of town. Jay is alienated from both the white-dominated police force and the Indigenous community, including his teenage daughter, whom he discovers is connected to the murdered girl. Starring Aaron Pedersen, Hugo Weaving, Jack Thompson, Ryan Kwanten, and Tasma Walton, MYSTERY ROAD is a gripping murder mystery with a cultural perspective. Written by
The film was intriguing, the cast was very good however the plot had so many misleading elements that were never fully developed - seemed like the screenwriter could not resolve his direction. Overall a very good film but the plot needed more resolution. The cinematography adds depth to the story, especially the overhead shots. Gives viewer more insight into the differences between the social economic classes. Pedersen is a very good actor, his facial expressions move his character along, gives him emotional range that makes us believe his devotion to the job. The plot is confusing, it was as if maybe dialogue was cut, too many details needed explanation.
