Storyline

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 Anonymous

Telegraph Road more like it.
29 January 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A promising start, but quickly descends into a parade of stereotypes. The photography and use of location is a stand-out, with some great tracking and framing (no hand held) shots. But it is ultimately frustrating. It's all corrupt white cops and drug dealers destroying the lives of the indigenous. Aaron Pederson walks through the movie like a saint, but for a detective, he never takes a statement or writes anything down. He does have a very nice hat, though. But being a white coloured hat, there can be no mistake who the good guys are. Telegraph Road, because plot is laid out so that even a child can follow it. Some of the dialogue is truly awful. Considering the all-star Aussie cast, it should have been a lot better.
