The Hunter

The last Tasmanian tiger in existence has been spotted in a mountainous region of the island off the Australian coast. Ex-mercenary Martin (Willem Dafoe) is dispatched to hunt it down by a biotech company who believes it carries a unique and valuable chemical. Posing as an environmental scientist, he begins his pursuit of the creature, only to encounter a nearby community riven with conflict and simmering tensions.

Faced with hostile locals and even more treacherous terrain, he must stop at nothing if he is to find his prey.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Julia Leigh, ‘The Hunter’ is an adrenaline-fuelled, intelligent psychological thriller starring Willem Dafoe, Frances O’Connor and Sam Neill.
