AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Indigenous Detective Jay Swan arrives in a frontier mining town on a missing persons enquiry.

'What seems like a simple “light duties” investigation soon opens into a web of crime and corruption implicating the local Mayor, Mining Boss and Aboriginal Land Council.

'Jay must overcome personal differences with the young local policeman while he pulls his life together to dig deeper into the conspiracy. They are led into a world of people trafficking and organised crime at the heart of the local mining industry, where the value of a life is pitted against big money and deep-rooted corruption.' (Production summary)

Notes

  • Sequel to Mystery Road.

'Goldstone ...makes a welcome return to the screen in multi-talented Ivan Sen’s outback thriller Goldstone, a sequel to Mystery Road (2013) that is, overall, more satisfying than the original. Sen, who not only writes and directs his films but also photographs them, edits them and composes the music scores, has, in these two films, combined the trappings of classical film noir with commentary on some of the ills affecting the most marginalised Australians. ...'

'With only five minutes of screen time and two minutes of dialogue, David Gulpilil delivers a powerful performance in Goldstone. When he first appears on screen, Gulpilil sits in a chair out on the dirt. Silent. Poised. Focused. Dapper in black cowboy hat and red shirt buttoned up to his chin to frame his face.'
