Woundings starring Guy Pearce and Ray Winstone

Woundings (1997)

Set in a semi-futuristic world reminiscent of Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange and Orwell’s 1984, Woundings unfolds in a remote post-apocalyptic island under rigid militaristic rule and occupied by shell-shocked soldiers whose job is to colonise the island. To that end, the government recruits lonely young women from the mainland with dreams of adventure and ‘love in a uniform’. Among these women are Denise, Kim and Louise.

Kim meets Stanley; they soon announce their engagement and become the first success story of the re-colonisation. After the wedding, all hell breaks loose when a sniper takes a shot at the visiting Prince and marks the beginning of the end.

As the dust finally settles, the irony of the program and of war itself becomes increasingly clear.
