Secret River, The
An epic tragedy in which a good man is compelled by desperation, fear, ambition and love for his family to participate in a crime of inhuman savagery. Through the deeply personal story of early convict colonists William and Sal Thornhill, The Secret River dramatises the British colonisation of Australia.
The dispossession of Indigenous Australians is made comprehensible and ultimately heart‐breaking as Thornhill’s claim over a piece of land by a river brings his family and neighbours into a fight for survival with its traditional custodians. Through compelling storytelling and stunning cinematography, The Secret River provides a personal insight into the hidden heart of Australia’s foundation story.
