The Cost

Filmed in Melbourne and set over a gripping 48 hours, Matthew Holmes' film The Cost is a psychological revenge drama that tells the story of two ordinary men David (Jordan Fraser-Trumble) and Aaron (Damon Hunter) who abduct a newly released felon Troy (Kevin Dee) who committed a horrific crime years before.
“While revenge is a common theme in movies, it’s mostly presented as a positive thing. When the hero violently dispenses with the villain we clap and cheer with satisfaction. I wanted to make a cinematic experience that goes in the opposite direction – one that explores the emotional and mental consequences of carrying out a brutal act of vengeance in the name of justice,” says co-writer/director Matthew Holmes, who goes contemporary with his latest film The Cost after impressing with his last two features, period pieces Twin Rivers and The Legend of Ben Hall.”


Q&A will be with Director Matthew Holmes, and lead actors Jordan Fraser-Trimble, Damon Hunter and Kevin Dee. 

They’ll discuss the process of making the film, the themes as well as take questions from the audience.
