A hotshot restaurant owner at Sydney's chic Bondi Beach struggles to keep his life from falling apart in writer-director Jonathan Teplitzky's intense and stunning Burning Man. In a tour de force performance, Matthew Goode (Match Point, Brideshead Revisited) stars as Tom Keaton, a hunky chef who meets and marries the beautiful Sarah (Bojana Novakovic, Edge of Darkness, Drag Me to Hell) and soon becomes a proud father. But when tragedy strikes, Tom is unable to cope and turns to a succession of eye-popping sexual encounters with an array of women while neglecting his family and losing his grip at work.
Co-starring Rachel Griffiths (Brothers & Sisters, Six Feet Under), Essie Davis (Girl With a Pearl Earring, The Matrix Revolutions) and Kerry Fox (Shallow Grave, Intimacy), Burning Man is a poignant portrait of a young man confronting loss and searching for redemption. It's "a film that will shock you with its honesty and its bravery" (David Stratton, Australia's At the Movies), a "poetic, moving, powerful drama with the distinct directorial control of an artist being announced" (Blake Howard, Castleco-op.com)..
