Unfolding in real time, THE DESPERATE HOUR is a “riveting and pulse pounding” thriller from award-winning director Phillip Noyce (Rabbit-Proof Fence). Recently widowed mother Amy Carr (Academy Award®-nominee Naomi Watts) is doing her best to restore normalcy to the lives of her young daughter and teenage son in their small town. As she’s on a jog in the woods, she finds her town thrown into chaos as a shooting takes place at her son’s school. Miles away on foot in the dense forest, Amy desperately races against time to save her son.
Although Naomi Watts was born in England she made her debut in Australia in 19886 in the film For Love Alone. Followed by other Australian hits. A few years later she relocated to the US and while participating in minor roles she eventually landed the film that would win her international recognition, with Mulholland Drive. Watts has appeared in King Kong, The Impossible and Birdman among several other big blockbuster films. She has been part of television series like Netflix’s Gypsy, Showtimes Twin Peaks and The Louder Voice.
