GROUND ZERO

Colin Friels stars in this political thriller which won more Australian Oscars than any other film last year, including Best Picture, Director, and Actor. As Harvey Denton, a cinematographer, Friels involves himself in the controversy surrounding his father's mysterious death 35 years after WWII, and there seems to be a connection between his death and Australia's nuclear secrets. Tension and political intrigue play against each other as the plot thickens, leading to an edge-o f-the- seat climax and an effectively unexpected epilogue.
