Goddamn do I love Ray Winstone. In fact, I love pretty much all of this trailer, even though it’s a little heavy on the melodrama at times. The film is called Tracker, and to save time, here’s the synopsis:
An ex-Boer war guerrilla in New Zealand is sent out to bring back a Maori accused of killing a British soldier. Gradually they grow to know and respect one another but a posse, led by the British Commanding officer is close behind and his sole intention is to see the Maori hang
Ray Winstone plays Arjan, the tracker, and Temeura Morrison plays Kereama, his Maori prey. Obviously, the part about them either teaming up or Winstone’s character taking pity on him is a foregone conclusion, but I’m cool with that. It has all the markings of one of those lower-budget, thoughtful films with stunning cinematography (it’s filmed on location in New Zealand) and excellent acting. I could be wrong, of course, but I like the look of it regardless.
Of course, it’ll never see the light of day stateside. So get ready to Netflix it in 18 months.
