Cut Snake

Synopsis: Set in Melbourne in the mid-1970s, Cut Snake tells the story of Sparra Farrell (Alex Russell), an ex-convict who is trying to make a new life for himself in a new city. He has found honest work and even becomes engaged but the prospect of this new life is challenged when his foreboding and charismatic cell mate Pommie (Sullivan Stapleton) tracks him down upon his own release. Sparra finds himself enigmatically drawn back toward a world and a man that he was certain he had wanted to leave behind.

You fixing it up?

Yeah, as much as I can.

What about the tour?

An first.

You making jams now, as well?

It's housewarming.

You've developed a

taste for quince, I see.

Not really.

You're a shit load older.

You're not drinking?


All right then.

Cheers then.

Listen, I'm really... I'm

really sorry that all this...

The hot and cold?


I didn't even know you were out.

What's that matter?




You're early.

So we have the whole afternoon.

Um... this is my mate

from Sydney, Jim Stewart.


Um, Paula.

So this is the big secret, eh?

Worth the surprise, mate.

Worth the surprise.

Good day, Paula.

I'm Jim, but you

can call me Pommie.


You've done real well for

yourself, young Sparra.

Real well.

Paula's dad found it.

Put a deposit on it.

Smart play, kid.


It's not like that.

Sure it's not.

Now look, some of the boys

have got a job on now.

I'm clean now.

You fucking serious?

Look, I can help you out

with anything you need.

Hotel, or anything.

That's real fucking

generous of you, mate.

Where's your lady friend?

Leave her out of it.

I just wanted to thank

her for her hospitality.



You always this slow'?

Well, it's normally just me.

I can go at my own pace.


Sit down, mate.

You're the guest.

Now that's exactly

why I should do my bit.

You've forgotten your fucking

manners, young Sparra.

I'm sorry, darling.

No, no.

I've heard worse.

You can take over, if you want?


So James, I didn't ask, is there

anyone special in your life?

Is she always this noisy?

Well, I was just asking.

I'm just teasing.

There's no one.

I reckon I should fall in love.

Look at what it's done

for this bloke, eh?

He's a charmer, isn't he?


Come on, let's get out of her.
