Film synopsis

A crisp Aussie crime caper from the producer of WOLF CREEK and CHOPPER, GETTIN’ SQUARE is a high energy and often hilarious observation of a crook keen to start over and work his way along the straight and narrow.

Fresh out of prison and keen on a culinary career Barry Wirth (Sam Worthington – AVATAR) is reluctantly lured back into the fold by old mate Johnny ‘Spit’ Spiteri (AFI Award winner David Wenham – THE BOYS, 300) and gangster-cum-restaurateur Dabba (Timothy Spall – TOPSY-TURVY) in order to settle a few old scores and make headway on a few new ones. It’s only a matter of time before Barry’s kid brother gets in on the act and falls in with powerful gangster Chicka Martin (Gary Sweet – THE TUMBLER) priming a powder-keg which is ready to go off in “…a cleverly scripted, very Australian crime comedy.” – David Stratton, VARIETY
