Airdate: The Royal Hotel

New thriller with Julia Garner and Jessica Henwick to screen from December.

A tense, top new Australian thriller The Royal Hotel, starring Julia Garner (Ozark), Jessica Henwick (Game of Thrones), will premiere on Binge in December and later on Movies Premiere.

The film directed by Kitty Green (The Assistant, Casting JonBenet), co-written by Green and Oscar Redding (Van Diemen’s Land) also features Hugo Weaving (Love Me) and Daniel Henshall (Savage River, Mystery Road: Origin).

Americans Hanna (Garner) and Liv (Henwick) are best friends backpacking in Australia. After they run out of money, Liv, looking for an adventure, convinces Hanna to take a temporary live-in job behind the bar of a pub called ’The Royal Hotel’ in a remote Outback mining town.

Bar owner Billy (Weaving) and a host of locals give the girls a riotous introduction to Down Under drinking culture but soon Hanna and Liv find themselves trapped in an unnerving situation that grows rapidly out of their control.

The Royal Hotel is produced by Emile Sherman and Iain Canning of See-Saw Films, the Academy and BAFTA Award winning team behind The Power of the Dog, Lion and The King’s Speech, together with Animal Kingdom and The King producer and See-Saw Films’ Head of Film and Television (Aus) Liz Watts, and Scarlett Pictures’ Kath Shelper.

Friday 15 December on Binge / 8:30pm on Movies Premiere Saturday January 13 and is available On Demand.
