The film adaptation of Erik Jensen’s award-winning biography of Adam Cullen is the story of the biographer and his subject, as it descends into a dependent and abusive relationship. Acute Misfortune is an forensic, intimate and bold narrative film set against a backdrop of actual events, with two profound lead performances at its core.

Acute Misfortune is the first feature of writer / director Thomas M. Wright, an acclaimed film actor and award-winning theatre maker. The film was co-written with Jensen, a Walkley-award winning journalist and the founder and editor of The Saturday Paper.

Filmed in late 2017 and early 2018, over seven weeks, on a budget of under 1.4 million dollars, Acute Misfortune was produced by Arena Media, Plot Media and Blackheath Film with major production investment and development support from Screen Australia, in association with Melbourne International Film Festival Premiere Fund, Film Victoria and Create NSW.
