Always expanding its list of feature films, Netflix has acquired The strangera tense Australian thriller The stranger starring Joel Edgerton and Sean Harris, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and is coming to Netflix in October 2022.

The film is written and directed by the actor and the director. Thomas M Wrightwhose directorial debut was in 2018 acute misfortune. He commented on working in The stranger:

“With The Stranger, I wanted to make a psychological crime film that would take the audience to a hidden place, a film that was authentic and realistic in its details, but also immersive and cinematic. A film that demanded attention and investment. A movie an audience could lean on and fall in love with. I focused the film on people who did not know the victim, but who dedicated years of their lives –and their physical and mental health– to her; because although violence is the reason for this film, it is not its theme. His theme is the connections between people. That means, to me, this is a movie defined by empathy.”

Wright also added about Netflix’s acquisition of the film:

“For an independent Australian film to premiere in the Official Selection at Cannes and then reach the world’s largest audience as a Netflix film is unprecedented. We couldn’t be more proud of this film and partnering with Netflix to release it to an international audience.”

The stranger is produced by See-Saw Films, Anonymous Content and Blue Tongue Films, whose founder Joel Edgerton stars alongside Sean Harris.
