CHECKPOINT - BEN PHELPS

Written and directed Australian filmmaker by Ben Phelps, who also made Nice Shootin' Cowboy, Checkpoint makes use of the vastness of the Australian outback. A husband and wife are driving along a deserted road with their teenage daughter when they are stopped by three soldiers. They have entered a restricted zone and the soldiers - threatening and racist - are unwilling to let them turn around. As with tense thrillers such as The Hills Have Eyes the seclusion is part of the problem.
