The Mule
Available on SBS On Demand
It's 1983. A naive man with lethal narcotics hidden in his stomach is detained by Australian Federal Police. Alone and afraid, 'the Mule' makes a desperate choice; to defy his bodily functions and withhold the evidence, literally. And by doing so becomes a 'human time bomb'; dragging cops, criminals and concerned family into his impossible escapade. Inspired by true events, The Mule is directed by Angus Sampson and Tony Mahony, with a darkly comic screenplay by Sampson, Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious) and Jaime Browne.
Starring Hugo Weaving, Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell
