Director Luke Shanahan – 2017 Australia 99 min West Coast Premiere – SciFi Thriller


Despite being thousands of miles away, Maude can still feel her abducted twin sister Cleo through what may be a psychic link in this Outback Noir anchored by dual performances from Adelaide Clemens. Exploiting prejudice and pseudo-science, Shanahan crafts an unforgettable and unflinching portrait of attachment.

RABBIT is a bold debut from writer/director Luke Shanahan who dives headfirst into a secret world, dragging us with him and giving us little room to catch our breath. Every sequence is meticulously designed and full of tension. Anchored by a phenomenal performance from Adelaide Clemens who plays both twins, RABBIT manages to avoid any distance that noir genre films often fall victim to. Maude is experiencing the same pain and terror that her sister is and finds herself in a dangerous situation with her only accomplices being two men who hate each other.

Without giving the story away, this is a film that manages to be as psychologically frightening as physically. And Shanahan amplifies its tension with a cool hand in capturing visual portraits that can be either as visceral or as scientifically sterile as the scene requires, all accentuated by an at times overbearing score that seems to oppress the action with its very soundscape. This is a confident film from a new director where the audience is always racing to keep up with the action but manages to dive in to the emotional struggle of the lead character.
