THE RECKONING is local filmmaker John Soto’s thrilling new film that opens this week at Hoyts Garden City and Carousel (sessions this weekend 5-7 September, and next weekend 12-14 September), with all tickets the special price of $15 across the board.

The film is receiving great response from reviewers around the country:

“A compelling thriller, 4 stars.”  – Erin Free, FilmInk

“The Reckoning is a well-structured and fast-paced crime thriller, utilising all the classic elements to deliver a suspenseful and spine-chilling film.” – Mark Morellini, Alt Media

Earlier this year, The Reckoning won awards at the the 2014 BRITISH INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL. After being nominated for Best Feature Film, Best Music, Best Director and Best Acto, the film won BEST MUSIC and John V. Soto won BEST DIRECTOR.

Shot in Perth,  the psychological crime drama stars Jonathan LaPaglia as Robbie Green, a detective called in to investigate the roadside execution of his colleague Jason (played by Luke Hemsworth).  When he arrives at the crime scene he discovers a data card from a video camera containing footage shot by two runaway teenagers (Hanna Mangan-Lawrence and Alex Williams) who are making a documentary about the drug-related death of a sibling. With the help of colleague Jane Pearson (Viva Bianca) Robbie retraces the teen’s journey and soon begins to uncover a trail of the dead that leads all the way back to police headquarters, which leads to a trail of revenge played out.

The Reckoning will have its premiere tonight at Hoyts Garden City, followed by an encore premiere sneak preview tomorrow night, to be attended by cast and crew.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
