When teacher Simon arrives in a small, secluded village to take over the local school, he is surprised to discover that his predecessor has disappeared without a trace - and that nobody seems too concerned about it. As Simon probes deeper into the disappearance, the inhabitants of a forbidding estate called "Summerfield" take on more and more significance - until events reach a tragic, shattering and unforeseen climax.

A review by kenoi

By kenoi

In the spirit of Hitchcock's thrillers, Summerfield stands original and a cult monument to the great potential of Australian cinema. From the opening scene to close this film is flawless in its execution of a gritty and gripping story that will keep you thinking long after. The setting could not be more perfect, with wonderful use of the Aussie landscape, and both the acting and characterisation is engaging to say the least. A must-see gem of Australian film, and well-worthy of an international name.
