Jodie Comer, Austin Butler and Tom Hardy lead a stunning ensemble cast in Jeff Nichols’ (Take Shelter, SFF 2011) stylish, gritty take on the rise and menacing transformation of an iconic American motorcycle club.

When Kathy (Comer, Killing Eve) encounters Benny (Butler; Elvis, SFF 2022) at a biker bar, she’s adamant that she wants nothing to do with his motorcycle club The Vandals. But the attraction is visceral, and they’re married within weeks. The mercurial Benny is also utterly devoted to Johnny (Hardy), the family man who founded The Vandals. Once a hangout for two-wheel enthusiasts looking for a good time, the club grows and the membership becomes increasingly hard to control. Kathy finds herself having to compete for her husband’s attentions. Inspired by Danny Lyon’s ‘60s book of photographs depicting the club and its members, The Bikeriders is an epic and thrilling portrait of a clan-like subculture and the ties that bind.

Limited seats are available for patrons requiring access for wheelchairs, low vision and hearing loop. Please contact our ticketing team directly on 1300 733 733 or tickets@sff.org.au to complete your booking.

Please note: Austin Butler will be in attendance for the screening at The State Theatre on Thurs 6 June only.
Austin Butler and Tom Hardy are cool personified in the Godfather of biker movies
Peter Debruge, Variety
This film opens up the storytelling throttle with a throaty growl, delivering the doomy romance of an old-fashioned western and the thrills of a mob drama
