The Kettering Incident (2016)

2016 | Australia | Vicki Madden & Vincent Sheehan | ★★★

Starring Elizabeth Debicki, Madden and Sheehan's The Kettering Incident is a for-the-most-part gripping, well-crafted, and beautifully located mystery thriller that unfortunately falls apart once its science-fiction underbelly is exposed.


"Set on the isolated island of Tasmania, The Kettering Incident is a tense, gripping thriller following one woman's journey to find the truth about her past. Dr Anna Macy was just a child when her best friend Gillian mysteriously disappeared. The two girls had been playing in ancient woodland on the edge of town when Anna saw strange lights in the sky, accompanied by a high-pitched noise. Hours after, Anna was found alone. Fifteen years later Anna returns to her home town of Kettering to find that the rumours still persist about what really happened to the girls that night - from Anna killing Gillian to alien abduction - so when 17 year old Chloe Holloway also disappears Anna is compelled to discover what really happened to Gillian."
