Within the dark corners of her past lies her only hope for the future.

"An artistic gem" – Keith Connolly, The Australian

 "4/5 Stars" – David Stratton, The Age

The Tale of Ruby Rose remains unique in Australia's cinema history. Pulsing with atmosphere, and boasting a beatifully haunting portrayal of the Australian landscape that has never quite been replicated, the film clearly draws from director Roger Scholes' love of European cinema. The result is a hauntingly beautiful work whose reputation as an Australian classic has steadily grown over the past 25 years.

During the 1930s in the remote highlands of Australian Tasmania, Ruby Rose (Melita Jurisic, Mad Max: Fury Road) lives with her husband, Henry (Chris Haywood, Muriel's Wedding), and stepson, Gem (Rod Zuanic, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome). Ruby is alone for much of the time and, afraid of night's darkness, she concocts elaborate mythical stories to survive, retreating into a private world. Eventually, she sets out to reconnect with her estranged father, and in the process transcends the fear that had gripped her so tightly.
