Quintessentially Australian, yet wholly unique, Wake in Fright was directed by Canadian Ted Kotcheff (First Blood) and stars British actors Donald Pleasence and Gary Bond, as the school teacher with a gambling problem who finds himself trapped in the Outback. His Odyssey quickly spirals out of control into a maelstrom of machismo, overbearing heat, kangaroo boxing and beer…never before has a film been so dreanched in the amber nectar. Infused with an edgy, anti-authoritarian spirit, this is a true cult classic that is now seeing a much-deserved second life.
