With a membership that includes Joel Edgerton, Nash Edgerton, David Michôd, Spencer Susser and more, it’s safe to say that the Blue Tongue Films collective isn’t lacking in talent. And while the name Kieran Darcy-Smith might not be the most familiar of the group, he more than matches the talent his colleagues have shown across their projects, and his feature debut “Wish You Were Here” shows another strong filmmaking voice emerging from Blue Tongue.
Starring fellow collective pal Joel Edgerton, Teresa Palmer, Antony Starr and Felicity Price, the film follows four friends who go on vacation in Cambodia, but whose lives are thrown into turmoil when one of them goes missing on a fateful night during the trip. And soon, drama and suspense rise as the secrets of the event come to the fore. “Wish You Were Here” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012, and earned a brace of nominations and awards in its native Australia, including wins for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor from the Australian Film Institute, the NSW & ACT Gold Award from the Australian Cinematographers Society and more.
“Wish You Were Here” opens in limited release on June 7th via Entertainment One. Watch below.
