Description
Winner of a **Cannes** Golden Camera Award, SAMSON & DELILAH is a captivating teenage love story about finding love in the contexts of class and aboriginal Australian culture. Everything in Samson and Delilah's indigenous community happens in a cycle; nothing changes in their isolated, selectively Westernized neighborhood. When tragedy strikes, Samson and Delilah turn their backs on home and embark on a journey of survival and discovery. Bound by hunger, rejection, social identity and devotion, the young lovers discover that life outside their community can be cruel and unfair. Still their hearts flourish. *"The film may be hard as hell to watch, but it's even harder to look away from."* - Michael O'Sullivan, **Washington Post** Winner of Six **Australian Film Institute** Awards, including Best Film, Best Direction, and Best Original Screenplay.
