"A Small Australian town. A horrific crime. The suspect is nine years old" sets up the mood for this dark psychological thriller from Hillary Bell. Wolf Lullaby explores mental illness, parent struggles and the "nature vs. nurture" debate.
An unspeakable crime, a small child is found dead in the "weeds". The questions begin; who did it? Why did they do it? Was it a child? Is it my fault?
Sit back and watch as each actor faultlessly play their roles, most notably Shannon Gray as Lizzie Gael, the prime suspect of only nine years old. Her parents (brilliantly played by Heather Crawford and Lyndon Cullen-Reid) torn between protecting their child while also trying to ignore their instincts. Both fighting against the reality that their daughter may have done it. But did she?
