Walkabout Limited Edition Blu-ray Box Set release

Seminal classic and one of the first Australian New Wave films, Walkabout, from legendary director Nicolas Roeg (The Man Who Fell to Earth, Don't Look Now) is a coming-of-age story of survival and transcending cultural differences starring lauded actor Jenny Agutter (Call the Midwife, The Railway Children) and the director's son Luc Roeg.

Although it received mixed reviews on its Cannes premiere in 1971, the film has gone on to become an internationally renowned, cult favourite loved by audiences and critics alike, and now Second Sight Films is giving Walkabout the Limited Edition Blu-ray box set treatment.

Following the suicide of their father, Mary (Agutter) and her younger brother Peter (Luc Roeg) are left stranded in the blistering heat of the vast Australian outback. Facing exhaustion and starvation, their salvation comes when they cross paths with an Aboriginal boy (David Gulpilil - The Leftovers, Cargo) on 'walkabout', a ritual in which he must leave his home and learn to survive off the land. He teaches them how to survive in the wilderness, but a clash of cultures leads to terrible and tragic consequences...

The Secrets She Keeps DVD & digital

The cat is out the bag...Brand-new nail-biting drama The Secrets She Keeps is set to have viewers hooked this summer. This six-part small-screen adaptation of Michael Robotham's best-seller follows the lives of two pregnant women in wildly different circumstances, whose meeting may be more than a coincidence.

This 'domestic noir' drama arrives on digital 8 July and DVD 10 August 2020 from Acorn Media International, following its run on BBCOne.

Successful mummy-blogger Meghan (Jessica De Gouw - The Crown, Vienna Blood) meets shelf-stacker Agatha (Laura Carmichael - Downton Abbey, The Spanish Princess) in the supermarket of her affluent Sydney suburb. The pair are both pregnant, bonding over the similar due dates of their babies, but as they grow closer, Agatha becomes more and more obsessed with Meghan's ''perfect'' life. However under the surface, problems with her high-flying TV exec husband Jack (Michael Dorman - Patriot, The Invisible Man) and tension with his best friend Simon (Ryan Corr - Cleverman, Hacksaw Ridge) mean Meghan is keeping plenty of secrets of her own...

Meanwhile, the father of Agatha's child, Hayden (Michael Sheasby - The Luminaries, A Place to Call Home) is away on duty and might not be as excited about the baby as Agatha is, forcing her to confront the question: when the life you want isn't yours, how far will you go to get it?

A fascinating exploration of female friendship, urban class divide, social media, and motherhood, all wrapped up in an edge-of-your-seat thriller, you'll be guessing The Secrets She Keeps until the very end.
