Critics applaud Shadow Dancer as it opens nationally

11/10/2012

Opening in select cinemas across most states of Australia today James Marsh's Shadow Dancer, the acclaimed IRA thriller starring Clive Owen and Gillian Anderson, has been met with praise by critics. From the Academy Award winning filmmaker behind Man on Wire, Shadow Dancer is a taut adaptation of the book by Tom Bradby in which a young woman is forced to betray all that she believes in for the sake of protecting her young son.
Simon Miraudo writing for Quickflix notes, "post-credits food-for-thought is a rarity in most films these days, and that it should come in the wrapper of a totally engrossing thriller is some kind of wonderful." The Sunday Age agrees calling it a "[h]ighly charged intense drama handled with intelligence and grace." The Guardian calls it a "[b]rilliant thriller," highlighting the measured "pacing and fierce female performances."
Opening October 11 Shadow Dancer will screen in Victoria at Cinema Nova, Kino Cinemas, Palace Como, Palace Brighton Bay, Cameo Belgrave, Sorrento Cinemas, Star Cinema Eaglehawk. In New South Wales the movie will screen at Chauvel Cinema, Cremorne Orpheum, United Cinemas Collaroy, Cinemax Kingscliff, Narooma Cinema; in Queensland it will show at Palace Barracks, Cineplex Balmoral, Cineplex Victoria Point, Blue Room Cinebar; in South Australia at Palace Nove Eastend, The Trak; and it will screen at the State Theatre in Tasmania.
