Straight out of Australia, SURBURBAN MAYHEM is a daring drama as sexy as it is pitch-black hilarious. Damaged by a mother who abandoned her and numbed by the ennui of suburbia, 19-year-old Katrina Skinner misses her brother, who happens to be a convicted murderer serving a life sentence. When Katrina puts two and two together and realizes her wealthy father's inheritance would probably cover an appeal for her brother, so begins a drug-fueled descent into criminality, a story of decadence that unfolds in a trippy tornado of flashbacks from multiple perspectives. This fascinating tale of crime and youth culture won the top prize from the Australian Writer's Guild and several AFI and IF awards for lead actress Emily Barclay, its original score, and supporting actor Anthony Hayes.
