Exclusive: Clip From Snowtown

Aussie drama Snowtown got a storming reception at the BFI London Film Festival this year, and as it gears up to hit UK screens next week, we have an exclusive clip of the film to show you. Warning: might make you crave bacon and eggs.

The film centres on Jamie (Lucas Pittaway), a 16 year-old living a precarious life with his mother and two brothers in a deprived area of Adelaide. Life seems to take a turn for the better when John Bunting (Daniel Henshall) befriends the family, providing a mentor figure for Jamie - but there's something rather dark behind his friendly exterior.


From first-time director Justin Kurzel, this looks to be one of those films that launches everyone involved on to big things. Check it out when it hits on Friday November 18.
