Strangerland had a lot of qualities attached to it: brilliant cinematography, stunning scenery of the Australian landscape, great production value, deep involving score. But the film's most beautiful part is the acting, everyone involved did a great Job, but it was Kidman's show, she is so powerful in this movie, natural, complex, raw & simply brilliant in every aspect, easily one of her finest acts. The Film could be deeply disturbing, mesmerizing if handled by a more mature director, or maybe if the story was simplified. Definitely worth watching, at least for the astonishing acts involved & the stunning cinematography. Strangerland is somewhat a difficult film to talk about. It does have absolutely stunning scenes reflecting brilliant work of a mature film maker, but in other scenes "specially the first part of a film "the director didn't seem to be in control, lost in the plot or at least felt like she had a lot to deal with. Throughout the film audience keep coming across a lot of quite random events they assume would make a major impact on the plot or at least they would have answers for. However a lot of these triggers are gone unanswered by the end of the movie, leaving the crowd lost. Which created a confusion while they try to focus on the main story line. Going through the most horrific situation ever, losing your kids, Strangerland spectacularly represented the emotions of the parents involved allowing the actors to shine on screen in many confronting scenes.
