The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Three teenage boys are led into violence and temptation on a journey that will shock their sleepy community yet also express its deepest jealousies and divisions.
 
The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael is a brutal and unflinchingly honest portrayal of life in a post-9/11 world. Filmed in long stylised takes, the narrative is elliptical and poetic, yet infused with a dark and ironic wit.
 
Selected for Critics' Week, Cannes 2005.
