About Blackrock

Blackrock is a powerful Australian drama that explores the themes of toxic masculinity, sexual violence, and the devastating consequences of peer pressure. Directed by Steven Vidler and based on the play by Nick Enright, the film follows the story of Jared (Laurence Breuls), a popular surfer who becomes involved in a gang rape that shakes the small coastal town of Blackrock.

The film is a raw and unflinching portrayal of the culture of violence and misogyny that pervades many male-dominated subcultures, such as surfing and football. It also highlights the complicity of bystanders and the difficulty of speaking out against the group mentality that often leads to tragic outcomes.

The performances in Blackrock are outstanding, particularly Breuls as the conflicted and guilt-ridden Jared, and Linda Cropper as his mother who struggles to come to terms with her son's actions. The film also features a young Simon Baker in one of his earliest roles.

Overall, Blackrock is a thought-provoking and emotionally charged film that remains relevant today, more than two decades after its release. It is a testament to the power of cinema to confront difficult issues and spark important conversations.
