Overview

Jaded police detective Travis (Simon Baker) arrives in the remote Australian Outback town of Limbo to investigate the cold case murder of a local Indigenous girl 20 years ago. As truths about the crime begin to unfold, Travis gains new insight into the unsolved case from the victim’s fractured family, the surviving witnesses, and the reclusive brother of the chief suspect. Shot in starkly beautiful black and white, Limbo is a penetrating modern noir and a poignant, intimate journey into the complexities of loss. Writer-director Ivan Sen, one of Australia’s foremost Indigenous filmmakers, deftly wields the police procedural to chart the impact of the justice system on Indigenous families in Australia.

Reactions, Awards & Festivals

"It is a tough, muscular film with the grit of crime, but a heartbeat of compassion."

Peter Bradshaw

The Guardian

"With its strikingly cinematic locations and Sen’s expressive use of the widescreen frame, Limbo also sneaks up on you, leaving a haunting impression."

"This is outback noir — oblique, secretive and as hard-boiled as the ground is hard-baked — and Sen wears it well."
