Aussie Noir, THE SQUARE, is finally coming to North America

Australian cinema has been on the down-low in North America for some time now (albeit, their film stars emigrate to Hollywood on the same order as Canada and the UK), but there has been some really solid stuff coming from down under lately, including Last Ride, Van Dieman's Land and The Loved Ones.  The Square, a stylish crime picture directed by stuntman Nash Edgerton,  has been touring the festival circuit for some time, had its domestic bow way back in July 2008, is finally getting a limited release in the US and Canada in April and a handsomely cut trailer has popped up on Vimeo (below). 

The film stars a bevy of awesome Australian actors, including David Roberts (who is a dead ringer for David Strathairn!) in the lead, Claire Van Der Boom, Anthony Hayes, Hanna Mangan Lawrence and Joel Edgerton.

The Square is getting a limited (NY, LA) release on April 9th, followed (hopefully) by a widening in May. Here in Canada the film launches in Toronto April 16th.
