Essie Davis Is Potent & Powerful In The Wrenching ‘The Justice Of Bunny King’ [Tribeca Review]

Any filmmaker smart enough to bookend their movie with Stevie Nicks needle drops deserves not only our attention but our enthusiasm, and Gaysorn Thavat does much more than that in “The Justice of Bunny King,” crafting a vivid portrait of a woman trapped by a tragic combination of circumstances, injustices, and bad instincts. The cameraperson-turned-filmmaker gets a big assist in this, her feature directorial debut, from star Essie Davis, playing a very different kind of stressed-out mother than in her breakthrough film, “The Babadook.” Together, the director and the star tell the tricky tale of a woman trying, with everything she has, to pull herself up out of poverty – and the impossibilities of that proposition.
