synopsis

For some people the line between pleasure and pain is too fine to ever be crossed. AFI Award-winning actor Harrison Gilbertson (Tim Winton’s The Turning, Beneath Hill 60) stars alongside acclaimed French actress Emmanuelle Béart (Mission: Impossible, 8 Women) in this unconventional and provocative love story in which an infatuation between the vulnerable teenage romantic Charlie and S&M mistress Maggie soon becomes something more dangerous. Director Stephen Lance’s first feature is an unexpected tale of misplaced love. Working with writer Gerard Lee (TVs Top of the Lake, Sweetie), cinematographer Geoffrey Simpson (Shine), Oscar-nominated editor Jill Bilcock (Mental, Red Dog) and Oscar-winning costumer Angus Strathie (Moulin Rouge!), Lance has crafted an impressively bold and visually captivating debut.
