“Mystery Road” centers on Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen), an Aboriginal police detective who returns to his small hometown in outback Queensland after a stint in the big city. He’s assigned to investigate the brutal murder of an Aboriginal girl. Both this violent crime and his arrival unsettle the community. Estranged from his former wife and his daughter and kept at a wary distance by his police colleagues, Jay is very much the loner in his pursuit. Juicy cameos from the great Australian actor Jack Thompson as a melancholic introvert, Bruce Spence as the town coroner and “True Blood’s” Ryan Kwanten as a casual racist. Director Ivan Sen delivers a classically structured, slow burning story about a lone hero fighting evil in his town — right up to the thrilling climax, an Australian version of Main Street at high noon.
