I found an Australian review of this. They say it's a "Masterful drama".
Equally impressive is the always watchable Jason Isaacs as Ben’s absent, once-violent father, Rob. Isaacs presence is sparsely pattered throughout Streamline, but the impact of Rob’s violence against both Ben and Kim looms over every frame.

It will premiere at Melbourne Film Festivl later this month, and in cinemas in Australia September 2.
Hope there will be more reviews and other content about the movie then.

Great reviews always helps. It seems like this will be a big movie in Australia, which is makes it more likely that we will get to see it in other places of the world as well.

Jason really has a great eye for intense projects and this and Mass seem to be exceptional projects to look forward to.

I found another review.

While Isaacs only appears sparingly (all while delivering a pitch-perfect Australian accent), Rob’s damaging presence hovers over the entire film. He emerges from prison a shell of a man, desperate to make amends for the misery he’s caused, and Isaacs finds light and shade in a character who’s haunted by the mistakes of his past.
