Samson and Delilah


Australia 2009, 101 mins
Director: Warwick Thornton
Starring: Rowan McNamara, Scott Thornton, Marissa Gibson, Mitjili Napanangka Gibson

Samson (McNamara) and Delilah (Gibson) are two young Aborigines living in small-town central Australia.

When a harrowing tragedy shatters their simple desert life, the pair steal a car and set off on a nomadic road-trip across the country's unforgiving Northern Territory towards Alice Springs.

As their perils worsen, they learn that, while life is often cruel, love can prevail in the most unlikely of scenarios.

The two newcomer leads head an ensemble cast of indigenous Australian amateurs and part-time actors in Warwick Thornton's debut feature, which boasts an array of awards and accolades, including the Caméra d'Or at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
