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 Ben Young, #HoundsMovie stars knockout performances by Australia's most exciting female talents Ashleigh Cummings and Emma Booth, with an outstanding and unlikely turn by Stephen Curry.
