The discovery last year's Venice Film Festival was a stunning debut feature in the Australian true-crime tradition from breakthrough director Ben Young.
Set in Perth in 1987, HOUNDS OF LOVE is a drama-thriller set in an era when the city still didn't lock its doors at night. HOUNDS OF LOVE delves into the now staple of Australian film: unsuspected violence behind ordinary suburban doors. John (Stephen Curry) and Evelyn (Emma Booth) look ordinary enough, if a bit rough; nobody guesses what goes on behind closed doors.
The award-winning first feature by Perth writer-director Young, HOUNDS OF LOVE stars knockout performances by Australia's most exciting female talents Ashleigh Cummings and Emma Booth, with an outstanding and unlikely turn by Stephen Curry.
