This compelling adaptation of David Williamson's influential play stars John Hargreaves (Don's Party) and Peter Cummins (Storm Boy) as good and bad cops who assist a battered wife (Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom) as she tries to escape her belligerent husband. Like the equally successful Don's Party, the film sees Williamson continue his dissection of Australian sexual politics by exploring issues of female empowerment versus male violence and sexual intimidation as a beaten housewife tries to retrieve her possessions from a threatening husband, but gets little help from a chauvinistic cop. Comic relief comes in the form of the whingeing, bludging Cockney removalist Chris Haywood (Jindabyne), who only wants to finish the job and get paid for his services. Performed by a faultless ensemble cast, The Removalists is a powerhouse presentation and a gripping look at suburban Australian life.
