Trivia

Although uncertain, it is very possible Geoffrey Rush's character is named 'Henry' as a nod to Henrik Ibsen, the playwright of 'The Wild Duck' (of which the film is based upon). See more »

Goofs

When Hedvig returns the shotgun to the shed, the narrator says "She unlocks a safe and places the rifle inside". This is despite the fact that the narrator has referred to the gun as a 'shotgun' in all the previous scenes. See more »

Excellent all-round Aussie Production
7 June 2015 | by edhart08See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this film today at the Sydney Film Festival....adapted from Henrik Ibsens late 19th century play ''The Wild Duck'' but totally rewritten and retold into a modern Australian story set,maybe in the logging areas of Tasmania but actually filmed around the very atmospheric Snowy Mountain towns of Tumut and Batlow. The acting is superb, particularly the wonderful Ewen Leslie who just gets more magnificent in each role he takes on...Script and cinematography add to the overall brilliance of this terrific Jan Chapman production....a must see for all lovers of great Aussie films both here and overseas...I cant wait to see it again on its general release
