Sundance 2015: Maybe the dingos should eat ‘Strangerland’

It seems unimaginable that a film centered around the desperate search for missing children could be so mind-numbingly boring, but Strangerland makes it look easy. A splendid cast, led by Nicole Kidman, is wasted on movie-of-the-week melodrama with so little forward momentum that it challenges the principles of Newton’s Second Law. Director Kim Farrant gives us a film that looks and sounds terrific, but none of her skill can hide what a complete mess it is.
