Classic Film Night — Sampson and Delilah (2009)

Classic Film Night

Samson and Delilah’s world is small — an isolated community in the Central Australian desert. When tragedy strikes, the teens turn their backs on home, stealing a car in a bid escape their difficult lives.

Lost, alone and homeless in Alice Springs, they discover that life isn’t always fair, but love never judges.

Described by the director, Warwick Thornton, as a “survival love story”, Samson and Delilah is both beautiful and heartbreaking, and resonates with truth.

In a rare instance of agreement, both Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton awarded the film 5 stars on At The Movies, and it was the only film to receive that rating from them in 2009.

The film won the Cannes Film Festival Camera dOr award in 2009 for best first feature film.
