A full year after debuting at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, the Australian thriller Felony is poised to hit theaters in the United States this fall. Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Animal Kingdom) wrote the film and stars in the story of a detective trying to hide a drunk driving accident after celebrating a major drug bust earlier in the day. One of his colleagues (Tom Wilkinson) tries to cover up the truth while another (Jai Coutney) is intent on finding out what really happened. This doesn't look half-bad, and Jai Courtney actually seems like a decent actor when he's using his native Australian accent. Watch the trailer!
Here's the US trailer for Matthew Saville's Felony from YouTube:

Felony is directed by Australian filmmaker Matthew Saville, from a screenplay written by actor/producer Joel Edgerton, who has helped write for The Square and The Rover previously. Three detectives become embroiled in a tense struggle after a tragic accident that leaves a child in critical condition. One is guilty of a crime, one will try to cover it up, and the other attempt to expose it. How far will these men go to disguise and unravel the truth? The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and hits Australian theaters this August, but Roadshow Films releases it in limited theaters in the US this fall on October 17th. Well?
