“Nitram” is a portrait of the Australian mass killer involved in the 1996 Port Arthur massacre in Tasmania, which led to fundamental changes of gun control law in the country. In addition to Landry Jones, the film also stars Essie Davis, Judy Davis, and Anthony LaPaglia. “Nitram” dominated the 2021 Australian Academy Awards Tuesday night with 15
nominations, and eight total wins for best film, lead actor, director, lead actress, supporting actor, supporting actress, original screenplay, and editing. The film will have a hybrid release. It will premiere in theaters on March 30, 2022, while also debuting day and date on AMC Plus, AMC Networks’ streaming service. IFC has made films available to rent on the same day they hit cinemas, but this marks the first time that the indie studio has premiered a film simultaneously on its streaming arm.
