The Royal Hotel

Americans Hanna and Liv are best friends backpacking in Australia. After they run out of money, Liv, looking for an adventure, convinces Hanna to take a temporary live-in job behind the bar of a pub called ‘The Royal Hotel’ in a remote Outback mining town. Bar owner Billy and a host of locals give the girls a riotous introduction to Down Under drinking culture but soon Hanna and Liv find themselves trapped in an unnerving situation that grows rapidly out of their control.

2023, 91 Minutes, Australia/UK, Rated R, Directed by Kitty Green

  • "Explosive. Subverts whatever expectations you might have about a thriller."

    - David Ehrlich, INDIEWIRE
  • "A masterful, tension-filled dissection of power dynamics."

    - Sara Clements, NEXT BEST PICTURE
  • "Julia Garner is extraordinary...Jessica Henwick is superb."

  • "Laughter and wails are almost interchangeable. That tension makes the film excruciating but exciting; like the characters, the viewer has to try to suss out what is a danger and what is just a good time."

    - Esther Zuckerman, VANITY FAIR
  • "90 minutes of psychologically punishing, vise-like tension, but also a sharp and canny report on human behavior."

    - Jordan Hoffman, THE MESSENGER
  • "It’s evident on every corner of “The Royal Hotel” that Green thinks cinematically in the old-school sense."

    - Tomris Laffly, THE WRAP
