Beautiful Kate

Ned (Ben Mendelsohn) has returned to the family farm for the first time in decades, seeking reconciliation with his estranged and dying father, Bruce (Bryan Brown). But what really draws Ned home are memories that have haunted him since adolescence - memories of sexual awakening, forbidden passion, suffocating guilt and a devastating family secret. Set against the backdrop of isolated beauty in South Australia's majestic Flinders Ranges, this emotionally raw drama co-stars Rachel Griffiths and newcomer Sophie Lowe as Kate. Feature directing debut for actress Rachel Ward ("The Thorn Birds"); screenplay by Ward from the novel by Newton Thornburg ("Cutter's Way").
