Movie Summary

Director:
Ray Lawrence
Released:
2007
Rating:
R
Jindabyne follows Stewart Kane, an Irishman living in the Australian town of Jindabyne, who's on a fishing trip in isolated hill country with three other men when they discover the body of a murdered girl in the river. Rather than return to the town immediately, they continue fishing and report their gruesome find days later. Stewart's wife Claire is the last to find out. Deeply disturbed by her husband's action, her faith in her relationship with Stewart is shaken to the core. She wants to understand and tries to make things right. In her determination to help the victim's family Claire sets herself not only against her own family and friends but also those of the dead girl. Her marriage is taken to the brink and her peaceful life with Stewart and their young son hangs in the balance. The story of a murder and a marriage. A powerful and original film about the things that haunt us.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Jindabyne's strength and power come from a number of factors: its origin, its current landscape and the unusual way its writer-director, Ray Lawrence, has chosen to work.

  • 70

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    The real flaw is that the movie's best features -- the aching clarity of its central performances -- threaten to be lost in a wilderness of metaphor and mystification.

  • 70

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Never obtains the full impact of its potentially powerful inner core.
