wake-in-fright4
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.
