Holden and Hunter are alienated twenty-somethings in an urban city of the near future. They are hired killers for the cops in a dystopia where murder is as common as cocaine, and is easily covered up. These killers never touch their victims and instead use their weaknesses to maneuver their self-destruction. They are joined by Charlie, a hooker who jumps at the chance to wreck vengeance on a world that has screwed her. And by Camille, an innocent cast adrift in a foreign city hoping to find security in Holden’s love. The paths of these four lost souls intersect in violence. An exciting new voice is discovered here in Rohan Michael Hoole. With influences by Brett Easton-Ellis and Wong Kar-wai this film sparkles with defiance, violence, and melancholy. Neon lit and urban rather than suburban this Australian city has more in common with Berlin, New York, or Tokyo. "The court of Lonely Royals" reminds us of exciting new discoveries like “Trainspotting”, “Lost in Translation”, and “Donnie Darko”.
