Four men, one woman and a stolen Pontiac. Joined by desperation and anger, bound for tragedy, speeding recklessly across the backroads. From the director of Australian Classics Dead-Calm, Rabbit-Proof Fence and Hollywood blockbusters, The Bone Collector and Patriot Games comes the searing thriller that started it all. Phillip Noyce's debut feature film, Backroads, takes us on a vivid journey into the remote corners of white responsibility for black despair in Australia. Gary, a young aborigine and Jack, the ocker drifter embark on a seemingly aimless journey to escape the vacuum of their former lives.
