About London Film Festival: The Royal Hotel

Backpackers Julia Garner and Jessica Henwick find themselves in uncharted territory in this taut Outback thriller from the director of The Assistant.

When Liv and Hanna run out of money whilst travelling through Australia, they take the only gig they can find: a live-in bar job in a remote mining town. They quickly pique the interest of the rowdy locals and while Liv looks to fully embrace her desire for adventure, Hanna is uneasy in navigating their increasingly precarious situation. Kitty Green’s tightly coiled social thriller expertly examines male-female power dynamics in a microcosm of Australian society.
