Wake in Fright: the book, the film

The long-lost 1971 feature film adaptation of Kenneth Cook’s Wake in Fright, starring Chips Rafferty in his last role and Jack Thompson in his first, has just screened at Cannes as part of a series called Cannes Classics. We have reissued the book—available now—with a tie-in jacket, an introduction from Peter Temple and a brand new afterword from acclaimed film critic David Stratton.

Distributed in Australia by Madman Entertainment, the film will screen at the Sydney Film Festival next month, followed by a general release. Watch out for it on a screen near you—it’s one heck of a ride!
