Predestination
Australia

After tackling zombies and vampires, the Spierig Brothers take on time travel in this stylish, intelligent thriller.

Based on Robert A Heinlein’s All You Zombies, Predestination is the story of a temporal agent on the trail of a terrorist, in an intricate web of twists and secrets that command attention. Ethan Hawke gives a nuanced performance as the time-travelling agent, backed by an on-form Noah Taylor as his enigmatic boss. Sarah Snook, meanwhile, dazzles with a revelatory and intimate turn, lending the film an uncommon emotional weight.

Shot on location in Melbourne, Predestination offers a distinctive blend of sci-fi, noir and crime fiction with a Bukowskian streak, as it investigates questions of destiny and identity with wit and insight.
