“WHAT LINKS A CAR CRASH IN THE OUTBACK WITH A GOVERNMENT MINISTER’S FALL FROM GRACE? PLAY JOIN THE DOTS – AND ENJOY THE STUNNING CINEMATOGRAPHY IN THIS GRIPPING AUSTRALIAN CONSPIRACY THRILLER.”
Arrow Films is proud to announce the Monday November 3rd UK DVD and digital download release of the acclaimed Australian political conspiracy thriller “THE CODE.”
Internet journalist Ned Banks (Dan Spielman, One Perfect Day) and his brother, the troubled hacker Jesse Banks (Ashley Zukerman, Terra Nova) are gifted a poisoned chalice when a phone video of a deadly outback accident arrives in their inbox.
Their decision to dig deeper drags the brothers into the darkest heart of politics. Together, with the help of Alex Wisham (Lucy Lawless, Xena: Warrior Princess) and Perry Benson (Adam Garcia, Coyote Ugly) they suddenly become the unlikeliest crusaders for democracy.
Stretching from the spectacular red desert of Australia’s outback to the cool corridors of power in Canberra, THE CODE tells the story of two very different brothers who unearth information those at the highest levels of political power will kill to keep secret.
“THE OUTBACK PROVIDES AN EVOCATIVE LAUNCHPAD FOR WHAT UNFOLDS AS A KNOTTY POLITICAL CONSPIRACY THRILLER WITHIN CANBERRA’S CORRIDORS OF POWER.”
“THE CODE IS AN INTELLIGENT AND COMPELLING THRILLER WITH A TOP-NOTCH CAST AND A SPECTACULAR LANDSCAPTE – IT HAS ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS THAT VIEWERS LOVE.”
SUE DEEKS, HEAD OF PROGRAMME ACQUISITION, BBC FOUR DRAMA
“THE CODES IS A WELCOME NO-NONSENSE, SWIFT-MOVING RETURN TO REAL MYSTERY AND MENACE. IT’S ENJOYABLE AND UNPRETENTIOUS.”
THE FINANCIAL TIMES
“AN AUSTRALIAN CONSPIRACY THRILLER OF INTERWEAVING PLOTLINES, THE CODE IS A STYLISH DRAMA WITH SUBSTANCE.”
“BBC4 RIGHTLY PRIDES ITSELF ON ITS INTERNATIONAL DRAMA, AND THIS AUSSIE THRILLER, STARRING LUCY LAWLESS, IS A WORTHY ADDITION.”
TOTAL TV GUIDE
When Ned and Jesse Banks publish a video of a mysterious accident in the outback involving two teenagers and a truck from a highly classified research facility, they face the full weight of a political machine desperate to keep the truth off the front pages.
As Ned investigates the truck accident in the remote town of Lindara, Jesse comes face to face with the ‘extraordinary’ new powers of the law.
Wracked by guilt that Jesse has paid such a high price for trying to help his investigation – Ned fears the worst when he discovers Jesse missing.
Ned and Jesse are on the run, and running out of options. Their house has been ransacked, their phones bugged, their every computer stroke tracked. Nowhere to hide, no one to turn to... No choice but to hunt down the truth in Lindara in the hope that it will save them.
Ned and Jesse are forced into an impossible choice – Hani’s life in exchange for technology capable of wiping out entire cities from the face of the earth.
Unless Ned and Jesse take action, their fates will be sealed, their story repackaged and the truth will remain neatly beneath the radar. It’s time to do something radical.
“THE CODE IS A STYLISH AND COMPELLING NEW AUSTRALIAN CONSPIRACY THRILLER.”
THE DAILY MAIL
“AN ONLINE JOURNALIST AND HIS ASPERGER’S/COMPUTER HACKER BROTHER, STUMBLE ON A HIGH-LEVEL COVER-UP IN THE OUTBACK IN THIS PROMISING NEW AUSTRALIAN THRILLER.”
“THIS PROMISING AUSTRALIAN SERIES IN BBC4’S FOREIGN DRAMA SLOT WILL
APPEAL TO THOSE WHO LIKE THRILLERS BUT ARE PUT OFF BY SUBTITLES.”
