Based on the acclaimed novel by Julia Leigh, THE HUNTER is a powerful psychological drama which takes us deep into the stunning Tasmanian wilderness. Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe (SPIDER MAN, THE ENGLISH PATIENT, PLATOON) stars as Martin David, a mercenary hired by a mysterious biotech company to hunt for the last remaining Tasmanian Tiger. Under the wing of Jack Mindy (Sam Neill, THE PIANO), Martin lodges at the home of Lucy (Frances O'Connor, AI: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE), who is grief-stricken after the disappearance of her husband, Jarrah and struggling to care for her two children, Sass and Bike. As Martin goes about his clandestine mountain search, he finds himself unexpectedly drawn to the troubled family and the treacherous landscape.
